Performance Awards

Digital Media Arts Performance Awards are given to incoming Huntington University students who declare either a Bachelor of Science degree in Animation, Film Production, Broadcast Media or a Bachelor of Arts degree in Film Studies. It is based primarily on a portfolio review, but also considers the student’s personal and career goals. Recipients of the grant will be expected to maintain a high level of performance in their growth as media artists. They also will be expected to contribute positively to the overall environment of the digital media arts program, as well as serve at specific events for cultural impact on campus. If a student’s performance or effort wanes, faculty reserves the right to revise or withdraw that student’s Digital Media Arts Performance Award. The award may be given back if the student shows that they have taken necessary steps to deserve it. Otherwise, the award amount renews each year.

The deadline for the Digital Media Arts Performance Award is February 1. Applications submitted at a later date may still be considered, but funds are not guaranteed. The Performance Award Application is not complete until a portfolio of work is also provided. 

At the end of the application, you will see a textbox specifically reserved for weblinks to your work. 

Please submit your portfolio as a video which combines all of the pieces you want us to see. Be sure to include a weblink (Vimeo, YouTube, etc.) along with your application. Though it is not required, you may submit a cover letter giving us more context for the work shown in your portfolio. Do not send us any physical artwork; we do not want to be responsible for sending it back. Include any still images in your portfolio video. Any written documents can be printed and sent with your application. Please succinctly choose 12 or fewer of your best pieces to include, showing your variety of experience. Video submissions should not exceed 5 minutes, so if films are longer please only include a sample. Portfolio submissions that fail to follow these guidelines may not be received as favorably.
