CPB/PBS Producers Academy
WGBH Producers Workshop Awards Announcement

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) and the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) are pleased to announce that the following twenty-five individuals have been chosen to attend the tenth annual CPB/PBS Producers Workshop at WGBH, to be held in Boston, June 19 - 25, 2010.

The Workshop received more than 165 well-qualified applicants for this year's seminar.  Candidates were evaluated by representatives of CPB, PBS, and WGBH.  The recipients were chosen based on their work experience, particularly as it applied to public television, their stated professional goals, the strength of their storytelling skills as demonstrated in their video presentations, their current production projects, and the recommendations they received from industry professionals.

The Producers Workshop is part of the CPB/PBS Producers Academy, which seeks to encourage new and diverse voices for public broadcasting on all its platforms.  Past Workshoppers have gone on to contribute to many of PBS's signature programs, including Frontline, American Experience, P.O.V., and Independent Lens, as well as important local, regional, and online productions.

This year's Workshoppers will also be featured, along with their colleagues from past years, in a new online social network, Workshop Online, to be launched later this spring and available as a resource for all public broadcasting hiring managers.
