Throughout the competition, high school and college students submit entries into a variety of media categories. Supporters of the A-State Creative Media Production (CMP) program can vote for their favorite entry by making an online donation. The entry with the most donations wins the CMP fan favorite award. Donations to the fan favorite begin at one dollar and support scholarships in the program.

“The Creative Media Production faculty are excited to provide this competition and for the public to have the chance to vote on a fan favorite. Providing the fan favorite voting as a donation opportunity means that students attending Arkansas State University will benefit from this competition as they compete and as money is raised to support student scholarships in our Creative Media Production Program,” said Dr. Mary Jackson Pitts, creative media production coordinator, A-State.

“We have a wealth of creative students in high schools and universities in Arkansas and the region. We believe this competition will help showcase the many talents of these students.”
