Prestigious Awards Program Revamped to Reflect Emphasis on Media
(McLean, VA, January 19, 2012) – The Alliance for Community Media (ACM) has issued its call for entries for the Hometown Media Awards. Previously named the Hometown Video Awards, the name change to Hometown Media Awards reflects the wider array of media being used by Public, Educational, and Governmental (PEG) access cable television channels.
The Hometown Media Awards honor and promote community media and local cable programs that are distributed on PEG access cable television channels. Awards are presented to creative programs that address community needs, develop diverse community involvement, challenge conventional commercial television formats, and move viewers to experience television in a different way.
The Hometown Media Awards is local cable’s largest video awards competition. Winners of the Hometown Media Awards will be recognized during the Alliance for Community Media 2012 Conference & Exhibition in Chicago. July 31-August 2, 2012.
