The 2013 Public Media Summit Awards

The Public Media Summit, February 24-26, 2013 in Arlington VA, will feature presentations and discussions on the most important issues facing public service media today and tomorrow, including prospects for federal funding in light of the 2012 elections, challenges and opportunities in the FCC spectrum auction proceeding, new strategies for growth in our industry, best practices in station management, business development and technological progress, and the new world of constant advocacy. The 2013 Summit will also feature some very special guest speakers, a Public Service Media Expo on Capitol Hill, and a celebration of the best in public television at a festive Red Carpet awards reception (coinciding with Oscar night).  

Each year, the Association of Public Television Stations honors public television stations and leaders for innovative service to their communities. The EDGE Award highlights excellence in the use of technology, groundbreaking partnerships, and other pioneering work in public television.
