The broadcast industry is characterized by having a rapid advance in technology that allows to see images and audio with increasing quality. But this technology alone would not work if the creativity of industry professionals is not behind it.

With pleasure we have seen on TVyVideo + Radio as during the last four years the quality of the audiovisual production of the students of careers related to the television industry, in Colombia specifically, has increased. This is a perception that results at the end of the call for the fifth version of the TecnoTelevisión University Contest.

In 2017, the contest received 58 postulated works, an important growth in comparison with the previous editions. A factor to be highlighted is the cities where the works come from. Not only came from the main cities where there are universities with production centers very well endowed, they also applied for intermediate cities where it begins to become more and more audiovisual production. In total, 22 different cities.

And this has been one of the main characteristics of the Contest, since it has allowed to know the production that is being made from different regions of Colombia. The winners of the previous versions have been from cities such as Medellín, Bucaramanga, San Gil and Manizales.

We expect from TVyVideo + Radio and TecnoTelevisión & Radio that the aim of the Contest to encourage interest in the practical training of future professionals in the industry with the best narrative and technical qualities, is motivating for their future professional development.

The winner of the fifth version of the Contest was Entropy, which was awarded last November's 15 in the framework of TecnoTelevisión & Radio.
