Huntington University won 19 awards at the 2021 Festival of Media Arts, with the Arizona location bringing home five.

“This sort of year after year recognition is a great benchmark for us that we are on a very similar footing with universities that do what we do, and do it well,” Phil Wilson, Arizona digital media arts program director, said in a news release. “When we attend the festival, I’m always very surprised by how many people know about us and how much respect they have for our digital media programs. ‘Oh, you’re with Huntington? Wow, you guys are killing it,’ is something that, I kid you not, you’ll hear at least once or twice every BEA from fellow media instructors who are in attendance.”

Huntington University students and faculty from the Indiana campus and HU’s Peoria, Arizona, location garnered awards in the categories of Sound Engineering and Design (1), Commercial or PSA (1), Promotional Video (1), Comedy or Drama (2), Sound Engineering/Production (1), Animation/Experimental/Mixed (3), Instructional/Educational (1), Narrative (3), Spots (2), Television Long Feature Reporting (1), Short Subject (1), Feature (1), and Original Television Series Pilot (1).

Additionally, two faculty projects and two student projects were named finalists for the Best of Festival awards, which will be announced on March 29.
