A Humber College student won first place at last month’s Emerge Media Awards for her radio piece on the last North American studio dedicated to radio drama.

Clare Bonnyman, a graduate of the Radio Broadcasting certificate program, took home the Audio Storytelling prize for The Story of Studio 212, the CBC studio that shut down in 2012.

Placing second in the category with Stigma, a piece about cerebral palsy, are Sean Towgood, Tevin Guthrie and Chris Wheeler from the Radio Broadcasting diploma program.

Stories from the Milk Crate, an audio piece about rock band The Guess Who, was a finalist in the category. It was produced by Vanessa Vanelli, Kieran Berry, Ralph Levy and Mark De Luca, graduates of the Radio Broadcasting certificate program.

The University of Guelph-Humber was represented at the awards by B. Sara Martin, a finalist in the photography category with In Awe. Emerge Magazine, the school’s online magazine, was a finalist for Design: Online News Site or Magazine.

The Emerge Media Awards recognize work by Canadian journalism and communications students. This year, students from 32 colleges and universities made 315 submissions. The awards are run by the University of Guelph-Humber and the event is organized by Media Studies students, while winners are chosen by an independent panel of judges.
