2013 College Sports Media Awards: Nominees Announced

After receiving a record number of submissions, Sports Video Group and the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) are pleased to announce the nominees for the 2013 College Sports Media Awards.

CSMA2013-wufooRepresenting a wide array of college athletic and academic departments, as well as professional networks, production companies, and student productions, the nominees are spread across four divisions in a total of 16 categories.

The winners will be selected by a panel of judges and announced at a ceremony on May 29 at the SVG College Sports Summit in Atlanta.

“The 2013 College Sports Media Awards is a testament to the ever growing investment in production at the networks and on campus,” says Tom Buffolano, chairman of the SVG College Sports Summit. “We have seen a significant increase in production from college students in particular, who have more hands-on opportunities that prepare them for the next level.  This bodes well for the growth of the industry as a whole.”

This year’s competition saw a 28% increase in total entries and demonstrated an even higher level of quality than in years past.

“With digital and video content becoming more integral in our industry, we want to thank the institutions who entered deserving sports-video productions for a CSMA,” says NACDA Executive Director Bob Vecchione. “We had increased submissions this year and look forward to honoring NACDA member institutions who are at the forefront of technology at the College Sports Summit.”

The Sports Video Group and NACDA extend their congratulations to all of the nominees.
