Turker Inanoglu and His Awards

During his professional career of more than a half-century, Inanoglu worked with an unmatched pace in order to present Turkish people a wide variety of performing arts, entertainment and cultural services. In return, he always received a sincere appreciation from Turkish public and cherished compliments and appraisals of numerous private and corporate establishments.

Rewards and recognition never constituted the payoff of Inanoglu’s cinema and television productions or his other pursuits. Nevertheless, the permanent indication of such favourable social reactions was always a driving force and a source of morale builder for his future quests.

Countless certificates of appreciation as well as various plates and honor awards received from individuals, private and corporate institutions –including Izmir International Fair, Antalya Golden Orange Film Festival, Istanbul Film Festival, Ministry of Culture, various media institutions and professional associations of film industry– depict the picture of a professional harvest that is the real prize of this doyen of television and cinema who has always been passionately committed to his vocation.
