Marin TV Producers: Submit Your Work for the 2014 Hometown Media Awards!

The Alliance for Community Media (ACM) has issued its call for entries for the Hometown Media Awards. The submission deadline is Wednesday, April 30th — just over two weeks away.

The Hometown Media Awards honor and promote programs created for our local community television channels. Awards are presented to creative programs that address community needs, develop diverse community involvement, challenge conventional commercial television formats, and move viewers to experience television in a different way.

This year’s Hometown Media Awards will be presented at a dinner celebration on Thursday, August 7, 2014 in Philadelphia, PA. The Hometown Celebration is held during the Alliance’s annual conference which is attended by community media professionals, producers and advocates.

All of us at CMCM have been very impressed with the programs seen on Marin TV over past year - take this opportunity to show your work on a national stage! To submit your work, click here. Good luck to all!

Marin TV Focus - The Day We Fight Back

A broad coalition of activist groups, companies, and online platforms will hold a worldwide day of activism in opposition to the NSA's mass spying regime on February 11th. Dubbed "The Day We Fight Back", the day of activism was announced on the eve of the anniversary of the tragic passing of activist and technologist Aaron Swartz.

On January 11, 2013, Aaron Swartz took his own life. Aaron had a brilliant, inquisitive mind that he employed towards the ends of technology, writing, research, art, and so much more. Near the end of his life, his focus was political activism, in support of civil liberties, democracy, and economic justice. The protest is both in his honor and in celebration of the victory over the Stop Online Piracy Act two years ago this month, which he helped spur.

Participants including Access, Demand Progress, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Fight for the Future, Free Press, BoingBoing, Reddit, Mozilla, ThoughtWorks, and more to come, will join potentially millions of Internet users to pressure lawmakers to end mass surveillance -- of both Americans and the citizens of the whole world.
