California Ethnic Media 2020 Awards

Editor. Peninsula 360 Press [P360P].

On June 3, Ethnic Media Services and California Black Media will co-host the nation's only multilingual journalism awards program. The online Zoom event will award 20 outstanding journalists selected from more than 230 entries submitted by media outlets in multiple languages: English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Russian, Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean, Tagalog and Arabic, among others.

California is the most linguistically diverse state in the country, with 40 percent of households speaking languages other than English, notes EMS Director Sandy Close. It also has the largest and most diverse ethnic media sector in the United States, with a combined audience that exceeds that of general market news in major metropolitan areas.

To judge these entries, EMS and CBM have tapped veteran journalists with linguistic and cultural fluency in each of the languages represented. "It's a challenge," says CBM director Regina Brown Wilson. "But we are honored to recognize the unique role these reporters play in informing and engaging California's diverse communities."
