FMC Folio Awards

FMC’s Folio Awards are judged by the public, and serve as a litmus test for how well the news media is serving and engaging the public. The Fair Media Council works year round to build a bridge between the news media and the public via open dialogue, relationship building and mutual respect.

In recent years, the Folio Awards have been expanded to include social media, which has become a vital form of communication in disseminating news and information, as well as engaging the public and reaching new audiences.
