Last week Viking Fusion, Berry’s student-run multimedia website for news and entertainment, traveled to San Antonio, Texas for a conference where College Broadcasters, Inc. (CBI) and College Media Association (CMA) presented them with a variety of awards. 

Senior communications major Eric Jackson and alumnus Chris Scott (17c) received the Best Vodcast award for their short film “Me and My Camera” by CBI. Their short film also received second place in the Best TV Entertainment Program category for CMA’s Pinnacle Awards. 

The Department of Communication’s Narrative Video Production class also received awards from the CBI. “Transaction,” a horror short, placed second in the Best General Entertainment Program category and “Slavery,” a public service announcement on human trafficking, placed fourth in the Best Video PSA category. 

Placing fourth in the Best Video Special Broadcast category by CBI, “Jude” is a film about a student who is interrogated over her connections with an infamous student. 

The Department of Communication’s Visual Journalism class received recognition for two of its stories by CMA’s Pinnacle Awards. “Debbie Cunningham: Building a career after 50” placed second and “Caleb Timmerman: Rockclimbing at Sandrock” placed third in the Best Audio Slideshow category.
