A live televised event featuring glamour, celebs, creatively expressive fashion, and 20 statuettes awarded to content creators at the top of their game. If you think we’re talking about the Oscars, the Emmys, or the Golden Globes, you’re close. BRIC's B Free Awards celebrates local journalism and the community-made stories that air on the Brooklyn Free Speech TV and Podcast Network.
We're rolling out the red carpet, the glamour, the fun, and the glitz for the makers who air over 650 hours of content on the Brooklyn Free Speech TV & Podcast Network every week.
Founded in 1990 and celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2020, Brooklyn Free Speech is the borough's community media station. We create possibility through education and provide a platform for all to be heard on our six TV and podcast channels.
In order to be eligible to win an award for the 7th Annual B Free Awards, your TV show, film, short, web series, or podcast must air on BRIC's Brooklyn Free Speech TV & Podcast Network between January 1, 2019 and December 31, 2019. Submissions accepted early to mid January 2020.
Tickets will be available to this always sold out event soon.
