The CBI Board of Directors has released entry information for the 14th annual Student Production Awards. Entry information is available online at the 2015 National Student Production Awards page, and submissions are now open. Submissions will close on Friday, May 15. Awards will be presented as part of the fourth annual National Student Electronic Media Convention, to be held Oct. 22 – 24, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis.

The National Student Production Awards honor outstanding student work in electronic media, and include more than 20 submission categories — including promos, news reporting, best DJ, comedy, entertainment, many sports categories and more for video and audio — as well as general categories in Radio Station imaging, website design and Social Media Presence. For each category, up to four finalists are chosen and announced before the conference. Winners and finalists are honored at the awards presentation. For a complete list of all 24 categories, visit the 2015 National Student Production Awards page.

Last year, over 800 entries were submitted, and 96 entries chosen as finalists and winners. The awards ceremony was standing room only, and preceded by the convention keynote with John Curley, host of the Curley and Tom Radio Show in Seattle.

“The awards provide a great opportunity for students to showcase their work in a nationally recognized competition,” said Awards Coordinator Steven Hames. “With multiple categories in audio, video and multimedia, there is something for every type of Radio Station out there — radio, television, online or a combination.”

Advisers and industry professionals interested in judging contest entries may contact Hames at the phone number or email address above.

Sponsorships are available for awards as well. For more information, email Mark Maben, CBI Development Director, at [email protected]
