Prestigious Awards Program Revamped to Reflect Emphasis on Media
(McLean, VA, January 19, 2012) â€“ The Alliance for Community Media (ACM) has issued its call for entries for the Hometown Media Awards.Â Previously named the Hometown Video Awards, the name change to Hometown Media Awards reflects the wider array of media being used by Public, Educational, and Governmental (PEG) access cable television channels.
