It happened today!
Massmediang and partners honoured four creative students of the department of Mass Communication,Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, whose works were outstanding during a class exercise they did with their colleagues.
Chinaza Nwankwo, Moses Sunday, and David Omeniho received award of excellence in creative photo-journalism for their exceptional but controversial work entitled “That She Is Vulnerable Does Not Mean She Is Rape-able!” The work stunned both their lecturer and massmediang team to the extent that a fresh award ceremony had to be organized to honour them. This is not ordinary. Those three students are truly creative.
Vivian Mbadugha was given distinguished actor’s award which she won during the Short Film festival for her outstanding performance in “Lyrics of the Dead.” She was denied the award because she didn’t meet the criteria to receive it at that time but with her performance in the photoshoot on domestic violence she now became qualified to get the movie award. Watch “Lyrics of The Dead” again and see how Vivian’s performance added value to that movie.
When you celebrate students for doing well in practical exercises they get inspired to unleash their potentials even before they graduate. The aim of massmediang is to change the orientation of students from desire to get white collar jobs when they graduate to quick quest to use their creativity to feed themselves and become their own bosses.
To Moses, David, Chinaza and Vivian we say congratulations!
