NEW FOR 2019
Those who have entered the SVG College Sports Media Awards in association with NACDA should note some key changes to the rules and entry procedures:

Given the growth of live video production by conferences and governing bodies (NCAA, NJCAA, NAIA), this replaces the Regional Sports/Local/Syndicators Networks Division.
• Production Companies and Regional/Local/Syndicators will now compete with National Networks in the New “Professional” Division.
If you are entering as a production company, regional/local network, or syndicator, you will now compete in the National and Regional Networks, Local TV Stations, and Production Companies Division.
• Social-Media/Digital-Platform Material Accepted

Entrants are highly encouraged to submit entries that were designed primarily for social-media distribution, both live and preproduced. This includes games or non-game productions intended for airing on Facebook Live, Twitter, a Smart TV application, etc. If you have any questions about where your video fits, please ask!
