Held by the Alliance for Community Media, the Hometown Media Awards, recognizes programming on P.E.G. channels that "address community needs, develop diverce community involvement, challenge conventional commercial television formats and move viewers to experience television in a different way."
RWSCC will be sponsoring up to five producers' entry into the Hometown Awards for 2012. Producers interested in becoming eligible for this sponsorship need to turn in all submission material (located below) to SCC staff by 6pm on Saturday, March 24th.
