The TARA Awards are an annual award show that honours the achievements of students enrolled in the RTA School of Media program at Ryerson University.
About the TARA Awards & the RTA School of Media
Since 1978, the TARA’s have been an integral part of the prestigious media program. The long running tradition in the program is an annual event of professional caliber, attended by over 300 students, faculty members and industry professionals in the media industry. It is a night to celebrate student achievement by showcasing the works of all four years, displaying a range of creative projects in radio, digital media, audio, film and studio.
The RTA School of Media is Canada’s preeminent school of media content creation, innovation, and broadcasting. Students of the program produce industry-level productions in audio, digital media, video, and screenwriting. At the end of each academic term, RTA faculty cast their vote on student productions in numerous award categories. The results are kept a secret until the moment the show’s presenters open the envelopes and reveal the winners to a live audience. As the RTA School of Media has expanded, students of Media Production and New Media are now eligible for submission of awards!
