NATAS created the Student Production Awards to recognize and encourage excellent student work in media. Entries were judged by industry professionals against a set of standards generated by the NATAS.

The Bethany student recipients will be recognized locally at an awards presentation that will take place on the Bethany campus as part of the production studio's Festival of Communication and Media Arts held during Bethany’s Media Week in May 2013.
