The B FREE AWARDS was created with one goal in mind— to celebrate and honor the diverse voices that every week air over 650 hours of community-produced TV on Brooklyn Free Speech.
With 15+ statuettes up for grabs, diverse category choices, and an awards show that always brings the stars, the glamour, and the excitement— we only have one question: Why haven’t you submitted yet?
