Media Exhibition at Guru Nanak College
In a first of its kind and novel move for the students of Guru Nanak College of Arts, Science and Commerce came the Media Exhibition and Seminar sessions, conducted on the 13th and 14th of September,2013.
Inaugurated by Mr. Bhushan Khot, Business Head for ZEE 24Taas, Zee Media Corporation Limited, Mr. Pramod Sawant, CEO of Yukti Media (also the sponsorer of the Exhibition) and Hon. Principal Dr. Bina Punjabi, the event was graced by noted dignitaries from the media fraternity. What made the course of the event even more distinguishing was the media literacy campaign hosted by the Department of Mass Media, aptly titled “Do We Know”.
Although the event was accessible to college students from across different streams, the event solely emphasized on media, the developments in the sector and the scope for aspiring professionals like us. Afterall, career guidance to yahi se shuru hoti hai na?
Spanning across two days and playing host to over 300 students and faculty, the Exhibition revolved around 4 major workshops conducted by industry big-wigs.
