Susan G. Lindsay Wins Arts Writing Award
Well, this was an exciting piece of news for me today...
I was awarded as one of the region's top journalists, taking home an award as finalist for top arts writer in the first annual NEENAs, New England Ethnic News Awards, last night. NEENA is a program of the New England Ethnic Newswire (EthnicNEWz.org) at The Center on Media and Society at the University of Massachusetts Boston (UMB).
More than 125 submissions were received for the NEENAs for six categories, representing publications printed in seven languages: Chinese, English, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
The NEENAs is a regional competition for New England that is sponsored by New America Media (NewAmericaMedia.org), based in California. The NEENAS and two other NAM-sponsored regional competitions are tied to NAM's 2009 nationwide ethnic-media contest, for which the national awards ceremony will be in June 2009 in Atlanta.
