Video by Cal State L.A. Broadcasting Student Receives First Prize in International Competition

The National Association of Television Program Executives' (NATPE) Educational Foundation recently announced Cal State L.A. broadcasting major Katy Boggio (Highland Park resident) as the first-place winner of its 2003 Student Video & Film Production Awards.

Boggio's winning entry, "CSULA Promo," was selected from 151 entries - the largest pool in the history of the contest. Submissions came from 88 schools in 34 U.S. states as well as from Canada and Australia.

For a quarter century, the NATPE Educational Foundation's Student Video & Film Awards have recognized excellence in the production of video and film projects by college or university undergraduates worldwide. Entries were judged based on concept, execution and creativity. All productions were required to feature original footage related to the applicant's university.

NATPE will award Boggio a $3,000 cash prize along with a matching cash award to Cal State L.A.'s Department of Communication Studies. Her video is a two-minute mock infomercial highlighting the "positives" of life at Cal State L.A. Boggio produced her winning entry as part of an independent study project in the spring of 2003.

In February of this year, Boggio's work received top honor in the Broadcast Education Association Festival of Film, Video, and Media Arts. Last summer, she placed first in the TV-Short Form category at the 12th Annual CSU Film and Video Festival at CSU Channel Islands. Currently a teaching assistant in the department of Communication Studies, Boggio is the recipient of a 2003 WIF (Women in Film) Crystal Scholarship Award.

The NATPE Educational Foundation, in conjunction with its Student Video & Film Production Awards, promotes educational activities on behalf of the foundation. Offering a wide array of seminars, grants, workshops, meetings, instructional videotapes and conferences every year, the foundation continues to reach out to NATPE members and the global academic community. NATPE is a global, non-profit television association dedicated to expanding business opportunities for its members through conferences and other year-round activities focused on the creation and distribution of all forms of television programming.
