News on the awards front just went from good to great for UCSD-TV. On the heels of last week’s announcement that we took home four Bronze Telly Awards, we’re thrilled to report that two UCSD-TV programs have been honored with Gold Aurora Awards! The annual independent film and video competition honors excellence in commercials, cable programming, documentaries, industrial, instructional and corporate videos.
Congratulations to health producer Jennifer Ford, whose documentary “Parkinson’s Disease: A Dose of Hope,” took home its second award of the season, and to our entire UCSD-TV production team who contributed to the April 2011 installment of “UCSD@50,” UCSD-TV’s year-long series honoring UC San Diego’s momentous 50th anniversary. The award-winning episode was hosted by Barbara Sawrey, Associate Vice Chancellor for Undergraduate Education, and featured stories on the new field of translational biology, UCSD’s Stuart Collection, profiles of three graduate students and their roles in driving UCSD’s research agenda, and the men’s baseball coach.
What a way to kick off 2012!
