Results of Student TEFI TV Contest at SUSU

South Ural State University acted as the general partner and platform for the 10th Anniversary of the All-Russian Student TEFI Television Contest.

The competition is organized by the Academy of Russian Television and is held with the support of the Ministry of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Media of the Russian Federation. Our university also provides support for its organization in Chelyabinsk.

This year, more than 400 works from 49 universities have been submitted to the competition. After hard work, it was possible to identify three finalists in each category, who were introduced at the opening ceremony and asked in detail about their projects.

"When you first come to a city, there are always certain expectations. I thought that Chelyabinsk was such a gray, harsh, industrial city. But I'm delighted! It is an amazing city, well maintained and beautiful. And most importantly, such a warm welcome from the competition organizers. The guys did such a wonderful job! Watching them, I realized that there is someone to hand over our television business to! Television is in good hands!" said Ivan Tsybin, Production Director of Channel One, documentarian, TV presenter of Channel Five.

The opening of the contest took place on the 22nd of April. Representatives of SUSU took part in the ceremony. More details can be found here.
