isma-logo

The results of the 2013 International Student Media Association (ISMA), formerly the International Student Media Festival (ISMF), have been announced. Four projects submitted by APS students earned the coveted Top Honors award, three were designated Judges’ Favorite, and twenty-seven were awarded Excellence in Media Production.

Projects exceeding the minimum criteria earned the Excellence in Media Production award. A Judges’ Favorite was awarded when judges believe the students have great potential as media producers and particularly enjoyed or were impressed with a project. The Top Honors were awarded to entries that met 100% of the ISMA stringent criteria of excellence and were also Judges’ Favorite.

APS Media Services Coordinator, Warren Goetzel, stated that it does not matter whether a project received an award. He congratulates all APS students who designed, wrote, and produced a media project this year. Goetzel adds, “APS strongly believes that media production empowers student learning and communication.”
