Premier's Multicultural Media Awards

The Premier’s Multicultural Media Awards (PMMAs) recognise excellence among journalists, photographers, editors and publishers in print, radio, television and digital media across 14 award categories.

The PMMAs acknowledge the valuable contribution multicultural media plays in our society by connecting people to their culture, identity, and language, and contributing to media diversity in New South Wales

Launched in 2012, these awards continue to grow each year and aim to:

  • celebrate and recognise the important role multicultural media make to support social cohesion and community harmony.
