• Rammy Awards Competition to Showcase Student Media Talent

2/10/2009

The Department of Communication and Journalism announced today a call for student submissions for the second annual Rammy Awards.  The Rammy Awards recognize outstanding media projects in ten categories within the communications field. The deadline for submission is March 13, by 5:00 p.m. All submissions are to be delivered to Mike DiLoreto, located in Ridgeway 305.  Rammy submissions will be judged by a panel of academic and professional media experts and the winning videos will be screened during the Rammy Awards ceremony.  The Rammy Awards will be held on April 9, at 5:30 p.m. in the C. Walsh Theatre with a reception to immediately follow the awards.

The competition is an important addition to a Suffolk University student’s resume and collegiate achievements. “Bringing a student award show to Suffolk University last year was a big step for the Department of Communication and Journalism. This year, I’m looking forward to seeing new faces up on stage. Remember if you don’t submit, you’ll never win,” said Jason Carter, the Director of Video Production and Facilities.
