ACTOR Paul Campbell is one of two recipients of the Caribbean Heritage Award, to be presented during the inaugural Oracabessa Festival, at Roy Wilkins Park in Queens, New York, on May 26.

Irwin Clare, a stalwart in New York City's Jamaican community, will also receive an award.

Campbell first came to prominence as Priest in the 1997 movie Dancehall Queen. He has had leading roles in films such as The Lunatic, Shottas and Third World Cop.

Last year, he appeared in the low-budget film Home Again, which looks at the plight of Jamaicans deported from Canada, the United Kingdom and United States, to their birthplace.

Later this year, Campbell will co-star in the urban drama Jamaican Mafia.
