BMC Wins 1st Place @ 15th Annual ACM-NE Video Festival

ACM NE Video Fstival

Congratulations go out to, well . . . EVERYONE at BMC: staff, members, volunteers and local journalists, and a BHS graduate turned political consultant for winning 1st Place for election coverage in the 15th Annual Alliance for Community Media-Northeast Region Video Festival.

Competing with over 200 access TV centers in New England from Manhattan to Bangor, BMC's hyper-local live coverage: Election Belmont 2012 took the top award in the professional category for elections and issues.

Thanks go to Carol Yelverton for anchoring the coverage, and to Paul Roberts (Blogging Belmont), former state rep. Anne Paulsen, Tomi Olson, Franklin  Tucker, from Belmont Patch, Town Clerk Ellen O'Brien Cushman, and BHS graduate Andrew Feldman, who reported live from Washington, D.C. and gave a near perfect analysis of local and national issues: unscripted.

Thanks to all those behind the cameras and monitors, like volunteers Precious Ngcobo, Julie Land, Jirair Hovsepian, Chris Buckles, and staffers Julie DeStefano, Paul Carey, Jeremy Meserve, EJ Johnson, Rachel Wiederhoeft (on her first day at BMC), Adam Dusenberry, and Jeff Hansell.

We'll recieve the award at the ACM-NE Region Video Festival Night in April.
