Congratulations to all Pinnacle Awards finalists and thank you to all who entered.

Please click here for the list of all individual finalists and here for the list of all the organizational finalists. 

We look forward to announcing the winners! Join us at the Pinnacle Awards ceremony on Thursday, October 27 at 5:30 p.m. at the Grand Hyatt Washington during Mediafest22: The Fall National College Media Convention. You have to be registered for the convention in order to attend the awards ceremony.

If you are a finalist, here are some things you need to know about claiming your well-deserved recognition at the Pinnacle Awards ceremony:

Should my staff and I arrive early? 

No need to! Just make sure you’re there by the 5:30 p.m. ceremony start time. 

Can my entire staff come up for recognition?

For timing purposes, we ask that you select one representative to come up to the stage. Physical awards will be sent directly to your adviser so you don’t have to worry about packing it.

My publication is a finalist but we can’t attend the event. How can I get my award?

We’re sad you won’t be able to join us! No worries. We will send your award in the mail after the event. We'll also post the results soon after the event so you can see what you've won.

Make sure to download the official convention app in iTunes or Google Play. That's how we'll be sending you any updates, so make sure to have it on your mobile device! 

And of course, share the excitement of the awards ceremony on social media using the convention hashtag #collegemedia22! Tweet pictures of your awards, your proud staff at the ceremony or share your media work.

Congratulations again on your hard work. We look forward to seeing you in Washington D.C.!
