Kansas Wesleyan College’s Advertising and Communications Division has received a nationally acknowledged award.
Kansas Wesleyan’s “We’re Again” video from August 2020 has been named a Communicator Award winner, in keeping with data launched this week by the Academy of Interactive and Visible Arts. KWU obtained an Award of Distinction within the non-profit class.
In keeping with KWU, different organizations to earn the Award of Distinction included Michigan State College, the Baltimore County Public Library, the Journal of the American Medical Affiliation, AccuWeather and town of Surrey, England. Winners of the group’s prime honor, the Award of Excellence, included Forbes, UFC, PepsiCo, Comcast and others.
“We’re Again,” shot and produced by former campus videographer Franco Rivas ’15, commemorated KWU’s journey again to on-campus lessons and actions following the tumultuous Spring 2020 semester, when lessons had been shifted on-line as a consequence of COVID-19.
“Any time you win an award like this, it’s a particular expertise,” stated Brad Salois, KWU’s director of Advertising and Communications (MARCOM). “Franco did a implausible job on this venture, and it actually grew to become a motivational image of the place we had been as a campus, the whole lot we’d skilled and our pleasure at returning to Salina. It helped set the tone for an ideal college yr.”
Rivas was just lately named video editor for Main League Soccer’s D.C. United, and an in depth search is underway for his successor in Kansas Wesleyan’s MARCOM workplace.
