Submissions open for 2018 Philo Awards

Each year, the Alliance For Community Media Central States Region salutes the best community programming with a regional video contest, the Philo Festival Of Media Arts Video Competition. Submissions are now open for this year’s Philo Awards. Named after Philo T. Farnsworth, inventor of the first receiving tube for television transmissions, the Philos recognize the efforts of modern day pioneers who work to promote the use of media in our communities.

AccessVision encourages its volunteer producers to enter their best programs to be considered for an award. Programs must have aired on our channels since January 1st, 2017. There are 25 categories of programs with Professional, Non-Professional and Student divisions in each category.

The deadline to enter is June 30th. Winners will be notified by August 4th and honored at an awards ceremony held in Alliance, OH on October 27th.

AccessVision volunteers and staff have won awards for their videos every year since 1991. Let’s keep the winning streak going! AccessVision staff is ready to help you submit your entries.

All entries are submitted online through Film Freeway. For more information, please visit The Alliance For Communiy Media Central States Region's web site.
