Reflecting on the prominent and increasing contribution of Latinos to society and the media world, Florida International University and AEJMC have come together to institute a Latino/Latin American Communication Research Award beginning in Montreal 2014.
The FIU School of Journalism and Mass Communication (SJMC) will offer cash prizes for the top three paper submissions and AEJMC will offer registration waivers to the winners on the respective annual Conference. SJMC will sponsor this competition through 2016, one which is expected to continue well into the future with the support of other AEJMC members and schools, especially those with significant Hispanic/Latino student bodies and/or research interests. The goal is to recognize Latinas and Latinos as well as Latin Americans for media research relevant to their communities in the United States, the Western Hemisphere or the Iberian Peninsula including cross-border communications (e.g., borderland journalism). It also seeks to promote and increase Latino/Hispanic/Latin American participation and research at AEJMC and to better publicize their findings. See Complete Call.
Description. In an effort to encourage more research and discussion on the audience for news, AEJMC President Paula Poindexter has created the News Audience Research Paper Award to be presented at the 2014 AEJMC conference in Montreal. Accepted AEJMC papers that have researched some aspect of the news audience are automatically eligible to be reviewed by a specially appointed committee for this new award. Cash prizes in the amount of $500, $300, and $100 will be given to the first, second, and third place winners at the AEJMC business meeting.
There is no separate submission process for this award. Papers on this topic should be submitted to whatever division or interest group is the best fit for the paper. After the review process has been completed by each group, accepted papers will then go through a separate review process for this award. See Complete Call.
