St. Mary’s College of Maryland has been awarded an Award of Excellence in the 2017 APEX Awards in the category of Electronic Media – Video Media for its “Join our Momentum” campaign video.
The national 2017 APEX Awards are based on excellence in graphic design, editorial content, and the ability to achieve overall communications excellence. This was the 29th year for the competition, which received nearly 1,400 entries this year.
St. Mary’s College’s “Join our Momentum” video highlights the diversity of both students and faculty, the College’s modern facilities and scenic location, rigorous academics and strong athletic programs. The ideas of personal fulfillment and learning beyond four walls are prominently featured because both resonate greatly with students, faculty, staff, alumni and donors. The video emotionally connects the audience to the College while highlighting the fact that we are one of only two public honors colleges in the country. The video was produced to promote the College’s $2.5 million building campaign and its successful completion.
Carolyn Curry, vice president of institutional advancement and Lee Capristo, director of publications, led the College’s effort in partnership with Creative Communications Associates from Troy, NY, who was contracted to film and produce the video. The company’s president, Ed Sirianno ’82, is an alumnus of St. Mary’s College.
