NAMIC is calling for nominations for its upcoming 2011 NAMIC-Southern California Vision Awards.
The diversity organization is accepting submissions in 16 award categories recognizing original content that best reflects "the increasingly diverse, multi-ethnic and multi-cultural viewing audience."
Qualified submissions received by the Jan. 14, 2011 deadline will be eligible for consideration, according to the organization.
NAMIC said original programming airing between Nov. 1, 2009 and Oct. 31, 2010 on broadcast and cable networks, as well as content distributed via VOD and digital platforms, are eligible for award consideration.
Nominations will be announced in early March of 2011.
"Through the Vision Awards, NAMIC has maintained a focus on the imperative to create programming that is inclusive of the depth, breadth and spirit of people of color," said Marco Williams, president of NAMIC-Southern California and director of Talent Sourcing for Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc. in a statement. "We are pleased to continue our tradition of honoring broadcast, cable and production entities for their achievements in programming diversity."
