Congratulations to all the winners at CCMA’s Excellence in Student Media Awards Banquet held Saturday night at San Jose State. More than 150 students and advisers attended the event. Earlier in the day CCMA held a career workshop in which students got to network with professionals from the Bay Area and receive advice on jump starting their careers.
The Daily Californian at UC Berkeley won general excellence in both the print and online categories for daily newspapers. The UC San Diego Guardian took home general excellence in print for weeklies and the El Don at Santa Ana College was the general excellence winner in print for publications that publish less than once a week. In the magazine category, CSU Fullerton’s Tusk Magazine won first place for genreal excellence.
The following are the lists of winners with comments provided by the judges (some judges did not provide comments).
