Two Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) student films will be honored with first place awards at the 2013 National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) Convention and Exposition in March. "Under the Sun" will receive the first place award for longer film category, and "To Every Nation: The Mission Ten" will receive the first place award for television/video documentary in the intercollegiate competition.
SAGU professor Rob Price says, "For SAGU Cinema to sweep both the long film and documentary categories is truly a huge accomplishment and a credit to the outstanding work put forth by our digital media arts students."
Price continues, "These awards give SAGU tremendous exposure to the entire NRB family of ministries. I can only imagine how much this will assist our students in networking for potential employment and other opportunities."
The NRB Convention will take place March 2-5 at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee. The awards will be presented at the Intercollegiate NRB Media Awards Ceremony & Showcase on Sunday, March 3. The SAGU Communication Arts Department will receive a trophy, certificate and $150 per first place category ($300 total).
The NRB recognizes excellence in Christian broadcasting and provides networking, educational, ministry and advocacy opportunities for members. The four-day NRB Convention and Exposition is held annually in Nashville.
