GoPro Challenge Winners Announced

Monday, Feb 29, 2016

Winners of the GoPro Challenge at NYU Tisch School of the Arts today were announced in a school-wide celebration. As part of the 50th anniversary celebration, Dean Allyson Green asked departments to tell a one-minute story about their department.

“Our partnership with GoPro allows our scholars, musicians, actors, designers, writers, filmmakers, coders, photographers, and animators to incorporate new technology in wonderfully creative and diverse ways," said Allyson Green, dean of the Tisch School of the Arts. "Fifty years ago, our school was heralded as a daring adventure, and innovative tools like GoPros help ensure that the spirit of adventure continues, inspiring both students and faculty to push the boundaries in the arts.”

In December, GoPro provided students in every department with cameras and accessories to create their own engaging content.

Students now are encouraged to participate in GoPro Awards, GoPro's always-on content platform that rewards the creative community for capturing and sharing their best GoPro photos, raw video clips and video edits. Selected photos and videos are eligible for inclusion in GoPro Channel programming, licensing and more, and students will also be eligible to receive monetary rewards through the program. Announced in October, GoPro Awards continues to attract thousands of new submissions weekly.
