BRAVO'S "PROJECT RUNWAY" WINS GLAAD AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING REALITY PROGRAM

NEW YORK � March 27, 2007 � Bravo's hit series "Project Runway" won a GLAAD award for Outstanding Reality Program at the 18th Annual GLAAD Media Awards last night. The honors were given out by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (ATAS) in New York at the Marriott Marquis (3/26/07). This marks the first time "Project Runway" was nominated for a GLAAD award which recognizes and honors mainstream media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives.

Bravo's "Project Runway" style guru Tim Gunn accepted the award for the series and said, "I don't know whether people realize the seminal work of Bravo and, by definition Bravo's support of the LGBT community. Beginning with 'Queer Eye' and transcending to 'Project Runway' and 'Work Out,' Bravo's content dispels myths, challenges stereotypes and positions LGBT issues thoughtfully and respectfully. Winning this award is quite possibly my proudest moment."

Added Bravo President Lauren Zalaznick, "This GLAAD award recognizes Bravo's commitment to present our diverse and eclectic view of the world through the creativity of our programming."

Bravo garnered three of the five nominations in the Outstanding Reality Program category � "Project Runway," "Queer Eye" and "Work Out." CBS' "The Amazing Race" and "Big Brother: All-Stars" rounded out the list.

Casting for fashion designers is currently underway for season four of "Project Runway" in Los Angeles (Friday, March 30 � Sunday, April 1), Chicago (Tuesday, April 3), Miami (Thursday, April 5) and New York City (Saturday, April 7 - Monday, April 9). For more information, including location updates and official rules, interested candidates can log-on to www.BravoTV.com.

"Project Runway" pits aspiring designers in competition to become America's next great designer. Given surprising and imaginative challenges, limited budgets and time, designers rely on their creativity and skills to turn out high fashion garments that will impress a panel of industry luminaries. Opening a door into the notoriously exclusive world of fashion, the premier reality series has proven to be one of television's most talked-about shows and produced some of TV's most memorable personalities and unforgettable moments.

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) is dedicated to promoting and ensuring fair, accurate and inclusive representation of people and events in the media as a means of eliminating homophobia and discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation.
