Whether it is crafted in writing, captured in photos or conveyed in video, the Newsroom and Video Production team produces creative and compelling news content that promotes the university among internal and external audiences. The team brings life to the institution’s many inspiring stories; produces a wide range of publications; and manages content uploads and updates on the main UCT website and the news, staff and student sites. The team also curates content for the Campus TV platform.
In 2022 we were still working and living under the shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic. The newsroom, video and web teams did what they do best; continuously sharing news and updates with the UCT community. Later in the year COVID-19 regulations were repealed, and we enjoyed some more human contact. We hosted celebratory moments during graduation seasons which were in-person and dubbed the Walk of Celebration held outside Sarah Baartman Hall. Though informal, they remained exciting. UCT hosted more in-person institutional events, including Women’s Day, Africa Day, the Retirees Dinner, several Heritage Month celebrations, sealing the year with a grand UCT Staff Awards 2022. All these events were covered through news articles, photography and videography.
