PUBLIC MEDIA AWARDS OF EXCELLENCE

Honoring Independent Producers Worldwide!

SUBMISSIONS ARE OPEN!

ABOUT

The Public Media Awards of Excellence (PMAE) is designed to showcase the “Best of the Best” in Public & Cable Access Television.

The PMAE awards was founded by a group of independent producers at Manhattan Neighborhood Network (MNN) – one of the largest public access stations in the country. The goal was to honor and recognize Public Access Producers at MNN, however, this was later expanded to include all Public Access producers across the nation because the plight of the public access producer is a shared experience and one that should be acknowledged and celebrated collectively.

Producers throughout the nation are creating dynamic, informative and exceptional programming year after year—very often without recognition. They are the unsung heroes of alternative media with an innate duty and obligation to present alternative television to their respective communities at large.

The Public Media Awards of Excellence Honors You!
