MediaLab supports content creators who live and breathe media in the broadest sense. Nowadays we can’t live without media. They help us to share information and to connect with others. Every day we get inspired by different content creators. That’s why we proudly sponsor the Special Media Awards, a national ceremony that gives young media makers with a disability the stage.
Special Media Awards
The award show will be held in the Dutch Media Literacy Week (Week van de Mediawijsheid) on Saturday 9 November at the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision (Beeld en Geluid) in Hilversum. With the award show young people with a disability are encouraged to present their media content to a broader public. This group of young people gets often not the right attention when it comes to social media. With this event, Amerpoort highlights digital inclusion of people with a disability.
