SSU-TV Video Festival, Monday, May 10
SALISBURY, MD--The SSU-TV Video Festival will be held in Caruthers Hall Auditorium on Monday, May 10, at 7 p.m. This is the fifth year for the event, formerly known as the SSU-ITVA Video Festival. The Festival showcases Salisbury State University student productions and is an opportunity to reward outstanding achievement.
The Festival is a culmination of a SSU student competition. Students who elected to enter productions were either enrolled in communication arts video production classes within the last year or were producers of programming for SSU-TV Channel 12, the campus cable channel. The students could enter their productions in one of the following six categories: "CMAT 136" (the beginning television studio class,) "Commercials and Public Service Announcements," "Informative," "Entertainment," "Music Video" and "SSU-TV" (complete programs that ran regularly).
All entries are judged by local television professionals from WBOC-Channel 16 and WMDT-Channel 47. The majority of these judges are Salisbury State alumni. Productions are judged on technical merit as well as content. Two awards will be given for each category ("Excellence" and "Merit"). In addition, one production will be awarded the "Best of Show" trophy.
The SSU-TV Video Festival is free and open to the public. Anyone wishing more information concerning this event can contact Nakihah Baskerville at 6-3306 (on campus only) or Frances Kendall at 410-543-6205.
