• First Annual Rammy Awards

3/13/2008

BOSTON, Mass. – Suffolk students now have a venue to showcase media items they have created at the first annual Rammy Awards, April 17 at the C. Walsh Theatre. Sponsored by the Communication and Journalism Department, the Rammy Awards is a student media festival that will offer students the opportunity to show off their talent and hard work.  Submissions are now being accepted for the Rammys and the deadline for submissions is Friday, March 28 by 5:00 p.m.  All submissions are to be given to Mike Diloreto in Ridgeway 305. 
  
 The Rammy Award will be a great addition to a Suffolk University student’s resume and list of collegiate achievements.  Rammy Award categories include: Commercial or Public Service Announcement (30-90 seconds); narrative: short (under 5 minutes), and long (over 5 minutes); experimental music video (3-5 minutes); news: short (60-90 seconds), and feature (2:00-10:00 minutes); photojournalism: photo essay.  Students wishing to participate in the festival must fill out a registration form to be handed in with their submission(s).  All submissions must be on DVD, except for photo essays that must be submitted on CD.  Students can submit items individually or in groups and may submit in more than one category.

“The Rammys are a celebration of our students' work and provide a great opportunity for students to receive exposure,” says event organizer Dr. Shoshanna Madmoni-Gerber. “The Communication and Journalism Department plans on expanding and increasing media opportunities at Suffolk; the festival is another step in that direction.”

Rammy submissions will be judged by a panel of experts.  Winning videos will be screened and students will be awarded a shiny Rammy during the ceremony on April 17.  A reception will follow. 

Suffolk University’s Department of Communication and Journalism offers students several undergraduate and graduate concentrations. Students take courses to establish a firm general foundation in Communication and Journalism; they also take courses in their chosen concentration, gaining specific knowledge and experience in their field.  Undergraduate students can major in the following concentrations: Advertising, Communication Studies, Film, Media, Journalism, Print Journalism, Broadcast Journalism and Public Relations.  Graduate concentrations include Public Relations and Advertising, Communication Studies, Organizational Communication and Integrated Marketing Communication.
