Former CMC media fellow, Tessa Stefanello’s audio slideshow, Problems With Working Hourly Wage Jobs, won Best Photo Slideshow at the SUNY Old Westbury 2015 Media Arts Celebration on May 6, 2015. Stefanello’s audio slideshow explores the challenges of working hourly wage jobs, often with no fixed schedule. Workers’ views are shared through audio interview and photography documentation. The project was created with the free tool UTellStory when Tessa was working as a CMC media fellow during the fall semester of 2014.
Avery Williams, who will be joining CMC as a fellow for the fall 2015 term, won Best Social Justice Video for a video promo she created documenting the Disparity Project, a project of the Teaching, Learning and Resources Committee in collaboration with CMC fellow and interns.
Another CMC collaboration, the short video #MyParentsToldMe by Catherine Fowler, Women’s Center, and Michelle Purpura, CMC media fellow, the was also nominated in this area.
Many of this year’s New Media nominations were created with CMC supported tools including the winner of Best Interactive Timeline, Crossing Streams by Jakim Beaufort, which utilized TimelineJS, and the winner of Best Multimedia Package, Linda Fonte’s Backyard Divided, a WordPress blog post.
