SAN BRUNO, Calif. – The Sports Video Group (SVG) and the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) acknowledged Honorable Mentions for the 2014 College Sports Media Awards on Monday and four West Coast Conference pieces earned recognition.
SVG and NACDA accepted nominations for videos produced by students, institutions and professional organizations for the 2014 College Sports Media Awards under four categories: Live Event Production, Program Series Special Feature and Promotion, PSA, Tease or Marketing Campaign.
Threee videos produced by the West Coast Conference received Honrable Mention recognition in the special features category. “The Rise of Gonzaga Basketball”, “Coming to America: Santa Clara’s Yannick Atanga” and “Who is USF’s Iron Chef?” were recognized for outstanding production and execution.
In addition, the West Coast Conference earned honorable mention recognition for the 2013 WCC Baseball Championship title game between the University of San Francisco and the University of San Diego in the live game and event production category.
Three West Coast Conference institutions were also honored in multiple categories. BYUtv was recognized for its program series “Countdown to Kickoff” in the national networks/professional category. BYUtv Sports: “Thursday’s Hero” series and “Alan Miller” also earned selections in the special feature category. The University of Portland earned a special feature nod with “UP Men’s Soccer 1998 Reunion”. The University of San Francisco was honored for its “Teacher” program series in the Collegiate Athletics category.
Representing a wide array of college athletic and academic departments, as well as professional networks, production companies, and student productions, these productions – while not receiving nominations for the CSMAs – are deserving of special praise and further emphasize the quality of competition across the industry.
The nominees and winners will be honored at the College Sports Media Awards ceremony on May 28 at the SVG College Sports Summit in Atlanta. The event will be hosted by ESPN’s Rece Davis.
