Staffs TV success at NaSTA 40

Tim Marshall AwardAt the 2013 NaSTA Awards night (National Student Television Association), Staffs TV won the Tim Marshall award for Special Recognition and What’sNext received highly commended for Best Live.

Staffs TV is the student television station for Staffordshire University Students’ Union and was co-founded by myself and Sophie Piedallu. We were joint station managers of Staffs TV and series producers for What’sNext for the 2012/2013 academic year.

Tim Marshall, CEO of Janet, awarded the Special Recognition award to Staffs TV for the progress made since it’s creation in September:

 As with all student TV, success in a large part is due to the passionate commitment of those who take part and particularly who provide leadership.

In less than a year much has been achieved to establish and inclusive and productive station.

They’ve shown great innovation and energy by training up a crew of 50 people.

Paul Ryan, the judge for the Best Live category, had this to say about What’sNext;

Well constructed, entertaining and informative, Good presentation and well directed. Hot Mikado sequence was excellent both visually and audio
