The Ohio Valley Chapter supports future television industry professionals by recognizing the talent and efforts of high school and college students in our region with Student Production Awards. We provide financial support for college students through the David J. Clarke Memorial Scholarship.

Congratulations to Tony Pape a senior specializing in screenwriting and comedy for TV at Ohio University’s School of Media Arts and Studies and the 2020 recipient of the David J. Clarke Memorial Scholarship.

We are now accepting applications for the 2021 scholarship. [more info]

Don’t miss your chance to be recognized! The Call for Entries for the 2021 High School and College Student Production Awards is now open and we are accepting entries.

The Student Production Awards process is completely online. While judged separately, both High School and College entries are submitted through the same portal.

The first step in the process is reviewing the Call for Entries. Be sure to read the rules and confirm the category and other eligibility requirements before submitting to avoid disqualification.

After you’ve decided what to enter, submitting your entries is as easy as 1 – 2 – 3 – 4!

  1. Log In to Your Current Account or Create a Guest Account
    You don’t have to be a member to submit entries. However, the process requires that the person submitting the entries have an account. Guest accounts are free.  Of course if you’d like to become a member, you can certainly do so for the low Student/Educator rate of $15.
  2. Submit Your Entry
    This is the “paperwork” part of the process – but it’s all online. Just log in to your account and complete an entry form for each entry.
  3. Upload Your Video
    You can upload your entry video while logged in to your account. Be sure to review the video specifications in the Call for Entries. Once you’ve properly prepared the video file, log in to your account and click on the Add Video icon next to the entry title.  Don’t forgot to approve your video. Entries won’t be available for judging until the videos have been approved.
  4. Pay the Entry Fee
    There is a nominal fee of $25 per entry to cover administrative costs. Credit card payments can be made securely through your Student Express account dashboard. Or, you can pay by check. The mailing address is available in the Call for Entries.

There is a 2-year eligibility window this year and different deadlines for High School and College submissions. Check the deadline dates carefully!

The deadline for High School entries is May 1, 2021 so final results will be available in time to submit the winning entries to the National High School Student Production Awards competition.

The deadline for College/University entries is: May 30, 2021.

Submit your entries early and beat the rush! Good luck to all entrants!
