AWARDS FINALISTS: Vote for the best U SPORTS creative content from 2020-21
Toronto, ON- When U SPORTS and member conferences cancelled fall 2020 competition in June 2020, it began a challenging year for athletics departments, student newspapers and others who work in and around Canadian university sports.
Largely without games this year, everyone has been forced to be creative to keep fans, students and alumni engaged with their school teams and sports. With the challenging year coming to a close and hopes of returning to competition in fall 2021, 49 Sports recognizes the best creative work from 2020-21.
We asked for your submissions, and you all showed up. Over 60 forms with nominations were submitted, showcasing some of the best work from across U SPORTS. A panel of 49 Sports staff and independent creatives and journalists reviewed all the nominees and narrowed them down to five finalists in each category.
To view and vote for the projects, stories and videos, please fill out the google form link at the top of the page, or scroll to the embedded form at the bottom of this page. Out of courtesy, please only vote once. CLICK HERE TO VOTE
