The documentary titled “Tosi’s Tales,” created by a group of Communications Media and Instructional Technology Ph.D. students (Dana Hackley, Chris Carnahan, Shelley Gross-Gray, and Ali Alanzi) for a Video Production course, has won the Videographer Award of Distinction from the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals.

The Videographer Award is one of the most coveted awards in the video industry. Over the past fifteen years, thousands of production and communication professionals have entered their best and most creative work. The goal of the Videographer Awards is to identify and recognize the video artisans who excel in the scope of their own environment. Winners range from network news operations to local cable access, from large production companies to freelancers, from international advertising agencies to student producers.

Winners were selected from 166 categories under the headings of television productions, video productions, and new media. The Award of Excellence was awarded to those projects that the judges deemed were written, produced, shot, and/or edited in an exceptional manner. Approximately 14 percent of the entries won this award. The Award of Distinction was awarded for projects that exceeded industry standards. Excellence and Distinction winners are listed on the Videographer Awards website.

The Videographer Awards is administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals. This international organization consists of several thousand marketing, communication, advertising, public relations, media production, and freelance professionals who have entered AMCP programs. The advisory board oversees awards and recognition programs, provides judges, and sets standards of excellence.
