MileSplit Recognized For Video, Writing By AIPS Media Awards

The International Sports Press Association (AIPS), releasing its annual list of top media across several categories during its Sports Media Awards, recognized MileSplit this week for its work in video and writing over the past year. 

MileSplit earned two honors for submissions under the 'Video Athlete Profile' category and three more for 'Writing Best Colour' and 'Young Reporters Writing.' 

In its fifth year, the Sports Media Awards welcomed 1,830 submissions, including 452 submissions from the Americas, which consisted of nominations from 25 different countries. 

AIPS' longlist selections represent approximately 20-percent of nominated works for the stage.

A year ago, MileSplit's Video Athlete Profile, 'Caitlin Little: Fifteen Forever,' placed sixth in the world during the competition. 

From this point, longlist works will be narrowed down to a shortlist before third, fourth and fifth voting stages will ultimately narrow down. Below is the recognized work.
