The Canadian Ethnic Media Association (CEMA) will host its annual awards ceremony on June 23, 2012, and is inviting submissions from writers, journalists and broadcasters (including Internet journalists). Entry deadline is May 18. This year we have added a new category called “INNOVATION.” Here is how we define Innovation as part of our ethnic media mandate: “The Innovation Award is a new category which showcases organizations that demonstrate innovation and excellence in Canadian Ethnic Journalism. It is truly a unique award for outstanding contribution to diverse, fair and equitable coverage and representation of Canada’s citizenry.“
