The Northeast Regional Video Festival honors and promotes community media and local cable programs that are first distributed on Public, Educational, and Governmental (PEG) access or Local Origination (LO), cable television channels. Awards are presented to creative programs that address community needs, develop diverse community involvement, challenge conventional commercial television formats, and move viewers to experience television in a different way. Members of CCTV are encouraged to submit entries to this contest since many of our members have placed in the top scores in the nation year after year. As an added incentive, CCTV will pay 1/2 of the entry fee if members submit a tape to us to be sent with the rest of our organizational entries. The fee is reduced from $25 to $12.50, and must be submitted before August 7. After this date you must submit your tape separately at the full amount.
Tapes may be submitted in the following categories: Arts, Children's programming, Community Bulletin Board, Community Impact, Cultural/Ethnic, Differently-abled, Documentary, Drama, Election Coverage, Gay/Lesbian, Innovative, Live Event, Magazine Format, Municipal, News, Performing Arts, Religious, Seniors, Special Interest, Sports Event, Talk Show, and Web Page Design Youth.
