As the 100th anniversary of commercial radio broadcasting nears, BEA seeks to remind students and the larger public about the historical impact of broadcasting. In order to promote the anniversary, BEA invites students and faculty to produce video and audio PSAs depicting memorable broadcast moments. In order to create a diverse cross section of moments, the “vignettes” should capture a variety of individuals, events, stations, politics, sports, natural disasters… that shaped broadcasting in some significant way. The video and audio PSAs should:

•      have a total running time of 56 or 86 seconds (allows for a 4 second tag supplied by BEA for all PSA finalists)

•      entrant should have copyright clearance (broadcast and online distribution) for any images music or production elements used in the PSA.
