Rated 5/5 (1 person). Log in to rate.

RGU:TV has won a highly commended award for its ident at the National Student Television Association (NaSTA) Conference in Birmingham.

 

The conference took place from Friday 31st March to Sunday 2nd April. There were TV stations from 48 universities in total, making this year’s event the biggest yet.

 

Station Manager, Andreea Alexa said: “I can only be proud of RGU:TV! Even though it was established years ago, RGU:TV started producing content for students in the last 10 months, so winning a national award can only make me proud and hopeful for the future.”

 

Having worked on the winning video, Assistant Station Manager, Robert Kandrik described the win as the “best feeling ever”.

 

He said: “The fact that we are a small and relatively new student television made it really difficult for us to stand out and we didn’t have high expectations.

 

“That is what made that moment even more special.”

 

Submissions were judged by industry professionals who gave feedback for each one. In attendance were some big names including BBC News Presenter Fiona Bruce and former Newsround Presenter Lizo Mzimba.

 

The conference has given RGU:TV a lot of inspiration for new videos, having seen what other stations have submitted. This inspiration and RGU:TV’s win has given hope for the future to those involved in the station.

 

Andreea said: “I personally think that RGU:TV has a great future and winning an award showed us that with passion, we can achieve anything!”
