These are very challenging, stressful, and unprecedented times we are living in. COVID-19 has drastically changed our daily lives. It has also changed the way that so many journalists work to inform the public. Delivering accurate and timely information to keep the public safe is now a critical necessity.

With so many closures being announced, the Suncoast Student Production Awards Committee had to make the difficult, but necessary decision to cancel the ceremony for our upcoming Student Production Awards. We are doing this to ensure that we all stay healthy and that we do not spread the virus.

We are working on ways to honor our Student Production Award recipients at a later date, or in a new way. A decision will be forthcoming and we will announce the new plans as soon as we can on our website.

The Suncoast Student Production Awards Committee wishes you well as we navigate a new way of living and working for now. Be healthy and be safe.

The Suncoast Student Production Award encourages the pursuit of excellence in video production and focuses public attention on outstanding achievements produced by college/university and high school students.

The online entry process is now closed. Nominations will be announced in mid-April. 

Schools and student award recipients may refer to the fact that they are recipients of a Suncoast Student Production Award, but may not use the EMMY® name or replica of the EMMY® statuette in any form of advertising or promotion or on social media.
