The University of Oregon's athletics video department was the recipient of the Sports Video of the Year award for its production of the 2009 Oregon Football Season Highlight video Tuesday at the 2010 College Sports Media Awards (CSMA) in Atlanta.
The awards were announced at the College Sports Video Summit as sponsored by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) and the Sports Video Group (SVG).
Oregon's video department, headed by coordinator Steve Pohl and assisted by producer Jayson Bosteder, put together the video that was awarded first place in the Special Feature Collegiate 1 competition as well as the overall winner, which included entries from commercial television networks.
The College Sports Media Awards divided the college sports video marketplace into three categories (Collegiate 1 for schools and conferences that compete in Division 1 football; Collegiate 2 for all other schools and their conferences; Corporate/Media for broadcasters and advertising agencies), each featuring the best live events, special features, and promotional videos.
More than 130 entries were submitted in three separate categories representing outstanding college sports video productions from colleges and universities across the country, as well as commercial college sports videos produced by major television networks and advertising agencies. However Oregon, the University of Miami, and Fairfield University were the only Division I schools honored with nominations in two of the three categories.
In addition to the Special Features category, Oregon's Rose Bowl motivational video was one of seven nominees in the Outstanding Promotional Video or Campaign category.
