Cammy Awards

Call for Entries

Colorado State University graduates are widely recognized for quality media efforts. The Colorado State University Media Festival asks entrants to submit fresh creative work for awards and discussion. Alumni, faculty, staff, and students who have produced media for general audiences can enter. Select works will be shown during the kickoff reception at the CSU Denver Center Wednesday, September 28.

Friday evening’s awards will be presented as we celebrate Cammy Award winners, named after Cam the Ram, with selections based on highest overall scoring by the festival committee. 

 Entry Deadline: September 9 

Entry Criteria

To enter work, you must be a graduate of CSU, current or former faculty member, staff member, or a CSU student. You must be the primary creative force behind the entry and identify your role. All winners will be recognized at the Media Festival on September 30. Award winners are not required to be present, but any attending the ceremony must register for the Media Festival.

Entry Fees

Your first entry costs $25, and your second entry is $15. We cannot accept more than two entries per person. You can pay the entry fees before or after you upload your file(s) on this page, but they must be paid on or before Sept. 9. If you purchase the Package Deal (includes registration for Media Festival and 1 Cammy Award entry at a $5 discount), you are eligible to submit one entry. An additional entry would be $15. Any entries received for which we do not have payments for will not be considered. These fees support the awards and the Media Festival events that bring together the CSU community over our shared passion for media.
