2017 Multimedia News Story Competition

Bailey Netsch won the first prize and Ivana Atanackovic won the second prize in the 2017 multimedia news story contest of the International Communication Division of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication.

Both Netsch and Atanackovic are students of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication of the Arizona State University.

Ms. Netsch secured the first position for her story titled ‘Separated by the War’, a portrayal of how an Iraqi family was split while crossing borders through the Balkans. Ms. Netsch described her story as, “Echoing the path of many modern day refugees, Rafo Yousef and his family fled Iraq and travelled through the Balkans to reach safety and security. His family was split due to the confusing process of refugee life while crossing borders.”

Ms. Atanackovic won the second prize for her story titled, ‘Women and Children in Kutina’, to show how volunteer organizations provide language trainings and organize fun activities for kids and women in a refugee center in Kutina, Croatia.

FIU-AEJMC Latino/Latin American Communication Research Award

Reflecting the prominent and increasing contribution of Latinos to society and media, Florida International University (FIU) and AEJMC joined together to launch the Latino/Latin American Communication Research Award in Montreal in 2014. The LARA Award is now sponsored by the FIU Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center (LACC) and the FIU College of Communication, Architecture + the Arts (CARTA).

Topics addressed may involve matters of Inter-American and Iberian-American communications, news media flows, media theory, media technology or new media, communication for development/social change, media law and ethics, media education, ethnic or gender media and integration, media economics, media and the environment, political communication, critical media studies, popular culture, and cultural studies among others. All research methodologies are welcome.

To be eligible, authors must regard themselves as members of the Latino, Hispanic or Latin American community. The term Latino or Latina, along with Hispanic, is meant to be inclusive, that is, individuals of Spanish, Portuguese, and even French-speaking background in the Americas. However, this award is not intended for European scholars, even if Hispanic, unless they have direct Latin American or North American Hispanic roots. The competition is open to AEJMC and non-AEJMC members, students, and faculty.

The competition will be administered by the ICD in cooperation with the MAC division. The selection criteria is as follows:

  1. Award recipients/authors must meet both the eligibility and the scope requirements
  2. If more than one person has authored the submission, the lead author should fit the eligibility criteria.
  3. Within the scope outlined above, submitted papers must contribute to the literature or scholarship on Latino, Hispanic, and/or Latin American journalism and mass communication studies.
  4. Each submission shall also follow the guidelines stated by the ICD or MAC divisions. In other words, awards will be selected from the pool of manuscripts submitted to both divisions through the normal paper submission process in the All Academic Portal, and winners must be included in the AEJMC annual conference’s program to receive the award.
Questions should be sent to Leonardo Ferreira at leferrei@fiu.edu
