Three members of SUNY Broome’s Communications and Media Arts Department will be among the judges for the Great New York State Fair’s first-ever drone video competition.

Professor Jason Detrani, chair of the Communication and Media Arts program, is on the panel of 10 judges, along with Department Coordinator and Assistant Professor Tim Skinner and senior instructor Ed Evans, who is also a journalist and documentary filmmaker.

Entries for the professionally judged competition can be uploaded at the event’s site on FilmFreeway.com through July 31. Videos in right categories, including a category for films featuring New York State, will compete for medals, with the winners in each of the categories eligible for the Best in Show prize of $250.
