OTTAWA - The Canadian Association of Broadcasters and the Broadcast Educators Association of Canada (BEAC) are pleased to announce the inauguration of the BEAC-CANPRO Video Award to students in Canadian college or university broadcast/media programs.
The first winner of the BEAC-CANPRO Video Award is Paige Armstrong of Loyalist College in Belleville, Ontario.
Following the dissolution of the CANPRO Festival after 26 successful years of celebrating excellence in Canadian television production, the board of directors of CANPRO, through the CAB, have made the funds available to the BEAC for the annual award to the best video entry in the BEAC's national competition.
"The generosity and vision of the CANPRO board of directors and the CAB demonstrates their strong commitment to the future of Canadian television. It will allow us together to recognize and reward excellence among Canadian student video producers," said Michael Monty, president of the BEAC, in a release.
"In carrying on CANPRO's tradition of excellence, this prize is another opportunity to support talented young Canadians," said Glenn O'Farrell, CAB president and CEO.
The award will be presented at the annual BEAC National Awards banquet today at the Ramada Inn on the Bay, Belleville, Ontario, during the BEAC Professional Development Conference.
