The Mashed Media Awards is a regional competition that honors youth who make innovative, outstanding digital media to artistically illustrate youth perspective in our communities. The showcase features inspiring youth driven projects that offer fresh insights on youth experience and promote social responsibility. The aim of the event is to build new audiences of supporters both adults and youth, who are working together to elevate the voices of the next generation of media makers.

Finalists and Award Winning work will be shown at the Kimmel Center’s Perelman Theater (300 S. Broad St) on Sunday, June 5th, 2016 from 3-5pm. Last year’s event attracted over 300 people in attendance, so this is a unique opportunity to reach new audiences and share your talent with the city of Philadelphia.
