The National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications is accepting nominees for its 2010 NAMIC Vision Awards presentation.
The awards recognize content that best reflects an increasingly diverse and multicultural viewing audience in 16 different television and alternative media categories, according to NAMIC officials. The deadline for qualified submissions for the awards - which will be presented during a special luncheon ceremony in Los Angeles - is Dec, 4, 2009, with actual nominations to be announced in early Feb. 2010.
Last year's winners included CNN Presents: Black in America (CNN); Ugly Betty (ABC Studios); Grey's Anatomy (ABC Studios); and The BET Honors (BET).
The Vision Awards are held in conjunction with the NAMIC-Southern California West Coast Creative Summit, a daylong educational forum focused on creating, delivering and marketing content across multiple platforms for the multi-ethnic consumer.
"As the television viewing audience becomes more ethnically, racially and culturally diverse year over year, NAMIC is honored to celebrate those broadcast and cable entities committed to green lighting and producing programming content that truly reflects our world's mosaic landscape," said NAMIC president Kathy Johnson.
