Register today for 2017 NW Media Summit: Stories for Change, presented by the Alliance for Community Media Northwest and Tightrope Media Systems.
Join us for a two-day summit on the role of community-based media in empowering the public and becoming change makers ourselves. The event culminates with an awards program, Best of the Northwest, in which exceptional non-commercial programs are honored.
Programming, screenings, and workshops will center around digital inclusion, equity, innovation, and building stronger communities and partnerships. We will focus on collaborative efforts between PEG, LPFM Radio, independent filmmakers, and other media creators.
The 2017 Best of the Northwest Awards (BOTNW) is now accepting entries! The BOTNW honors exceptional programs produced in calendar years 2015 and 2016 telecast on community television channels/outlets in the Northwest Region of the Alliance for Community Media (ACM). Non-commercial programs originally produced to play on PEG access centers, local-origination cable channels, or for independent, online distribution during calendar years 2015 and 2016 are eligible to enter. The Awards will be presented as part of the Regional gathering on March 31-April 1 in Portland, OR.
