Emerge wins. Big.

UofGH media studies students take home 9 awards at the Fall National College Media Convention

Success story picked up by national magazine industry news outlets:

Canadian Magazines

The competition saw more than 3000 entries covering every kind of media you can think of.  Daily newspaper, feature magazine, website, radio station, mobile app/plug-in.  Submissions came from all over the United States and Canada – representing about 180 of some of the best media schools across North America.

At a convention earlier this month – called the largest convention of its kind in the world – awards were presented to honour the best.

The National College Media Convention is presented by two American student media organizations: College Media Association and Associated Collegiate Press.

Emerge won awards from both.

“Our students have competed against the best media schools in North America – and have proven that UofGH stands among the best,” says Program Head of Media Studies, Jerry Chomyn.

Emerge is a multiplatform, multidiscipline project produced by UofGH media studies students. It’s a glossy magazine, a one-day conference, a website, a photography exhibition and a media strategy.
