2014 Sammy Digital Media Awards

Sponsored by The Integrated Media Center

Information & Submission Requirements  

Salisbury University opened the new Integrated Media Center in the fall 2008,  the space was soon named the GullWorks Studios at Salisbury University.  The high definition and standard definition video studios,  the HD audio recording studio,  the 15 video editing suites and 5 audio editing suites, and two multi-media instructional labs are all state of the art. The fact that all of these facilities are adjacent to one another on the third floor of the Teacher Education and Technology Center,  make this media facility truly unique. A major goal of the studios is to foster creativity and collaboration among artists from across the campus.

The Sammy Awards began in 2009. As we opened the new studios there was a strong interest in "raising the bar" and broadening participation in the creation of digital media. The Sammy Awards were created to do just this. The Sammy's are awarded annually to students who achieve excellence in the areas of digital media. The awards and competition are not limited to students in a specific major. The Sammy's are open to all SU students.
