The Alliance for Community Media, Northeast Region (ACM-NE) pleased to release our list of winners for the 17th Annual Video Festival. Programs produced all around New England and New York, by students, professionals and senior citizens competed in 20 categories. We wish to express our congratulations to everyone who entered the contest this year. We also wish to thank Peabody Access Telecommunications for handling the competition and all of the volunteer judges who took the time to review and score each program. All winners need to carefully review the spelling of the names of the show, producer(s) and station and let us know by September 29 if there are any errors.
This is the list that the awards are created from. If we were not notified of spelling errors, it will be the winner’s responsibility to pay for a corrected award.
The winners list is HERE!
