What is Lights, Camera, Auction?

It’s a unique fundraising event for KTWU Channel 11. New merchandise and services are auctioned to viewers who bid exclusively from electronic devices. The items are contributed by businesses and individuals in support of the mission of local public television in our forty-county viewing area that reaches over one million potential viewers. 

The LIGHTS, CAMERA, AUCTION is also an opportunity for companies, corporations, agencies, small businesses and individuals to gain invaluable online and social media exposure. We’re limited only by our imagination and your interest in being a part of this great annual event.

Auction income is used to purchase quality programming and maintain equipment for KTWU Channel 11. The majority of the station’s overall funding comes from community support and viewers throughout the area.


The auction is hosted by KTWU, local public television, through our online portal Warehousing, Pick Up & Pay, and the Auction store are located at the KTWU building at 19th and Jewell Avenue on the Washburn University campus. Many of the items auctioned are available to be shipped, otherwise buyers pick up their winning purchases at the station.
