Great things are happening at Missouri State University in the Media, Journalism & Film Department!
EMMY AWARD for Epilogue the Series
- MJF students won their first student Emmy Award at the 34th College Television Awards. Hosted by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation, this national competition recognizes the best in student media and journalism productions.
Over 100 MJF majors – screenwriters, production and post-production students – worked for over a year to create the original science fiction web series, Epilogue.
In addition to earning 2nd Place in the Emmy competition, Epilogue has won a dozen other national and regional awards. You can watch this series about time travel and a world-wide plague and watch a series of behind-the-scenes documentaries about the production by visiting the website.
Journalism majors in MJF continue to rack up national honors for their work on MSU’s one hundred year old student newspaper, The Standard.
- Standard staff members, Megan Gates, Stephanie Anderson and Brent Rinehart, were named as finalists in six categories of the 2013 Associated Collegiate Press Awards. They are competing nationally for honors in News Story, Sports Photography, News Magazine Cover Design, Ad Copy, and Brochure/Rate Card.
Last year, Stephanie took 3rd Place in Sports Photography in the ACP Awards Competition for her picture of a Missouri State swimmer competing at a national meet.
- Students working at The Standard also earned four 2013 Society of Professional Journalism Awards (Region 7 — Missouri/Iowa/Nebraska/Kansas). The Standard won for Best All-Around Non-Daily Student Newspaper (for a Four Year College/University), and in the categories of General News Photography, Sports Photography and Photo Illustration.
- In the 2013 Missouri College Media Association Awards, the 2012-13 Editor in Chief of The Standard, Megan Gates, won Journalist of the Year, and the paper was named Best in State (All Divisions). Quite an accomplishment given the great student newspapers produced all across Missouri.
