Brian Wilson, ACM Leader,

We Honor Him with the Mentorship Award.

Friends of the Alliance for Community Media Western Region….. go to for the application forms – 2012 Brian Wilson Mentorship Awards. This notice a bit late so we ask you to think and act immediately to submit your candidate names by Sept 28, 2012.

This is not a “competition” but rather a very special recognition to those individuals who go above and beyond in your PEG center to make things work and insure everyone feels respected and valued. Please consider carefully and submit their names and why they deserve this honor.

Brian Wilson was a friend and leader of the Alliance for Community Media for many years. The Brian Wilson Award is granted annually, in his memory, to recognize those individuals at all levels of PEG Access who take the time to provide EXTRAORDINARY mentorship and guidance to others.

Award winners may be PEG staff, Board members, producer volunteers, teachers, elected leaders, anyone who cares enough to routinely take time and energy to help others make good use of the public, education, and government access resources available in your community. Who deserves SPECIAL recognition because they don’t call attention to themselves? This is a special honor for a very special person in your organization.

The Award honoree(s) will be introduced during the Western Access Video Excellence (WAVE) ceremony. Please take a moment and recommend someone you think significantly helps your PEG Access organization feel welcome and productive.

Wilson Awards applications are free to enter and should be sent by September28, 2012. For the complete application, go to
