The Ethnic Media Awards

Celebrating the best of the UK’s diverse media talent

The Ethnic Media Awards are the flagship awards programme for professionals from a minority ethnic background. They recognise, promote and reward outstanding achievement in journalism, media and the entertainment industry. They honour the excellence of talented minority ethnic individuals who are pushing the boundaries of accomplishment in their field.
