Registration now open for the Stronger Together Community Media Summit

Join us at the DoubleTree Suites Southcenter in Tukwila, WA on March 27th and 28th for our regional community media summit “Stronger Together”!

What is community media? To borrow a concept from Zane Ibrahim, founder of Bush Radio in South Africa; he saw community radio as being “90% community and 10% radio.” No matter which platform you produce media for, it applies.

Best of the Northwest Awards Now Accepting Submissions

After a brief hiatus, our staple community media event has returned and with an even more robust awards ceremony. We’re excited to announce new categories and adjusted rules that allow independent media producers more ways to be eligible for entrance.

Our new award categories include Transmedia, Webisodes, and Community Radio/LPFM/Podcasts (Talk Show and News/Documentary). Youth are also welcome to participate in the awards. We’re happy to say that the entrance fee for programming produced by students in K-12 is only $15.

We’re also encouraging non-commercial media makers of all kinds to enter into our contest by allowing content not previously aired on PEG of local-origination cable channels to enter. The takeaway: as long as your program is non-commercial in nature, we encourage you to enter it in The Best of the Northwest Awards.


The Best of the Northwest Awards recognizes exceptional community media and PEG produced content, as well as independently produced television and radio content. We look forward to seeing your entries, and honoring your accomplishments as media producers at the 2015 Best of the Northwest Awards!
