Al-Majali wins Aegis Award


Laith Al-Majali has won a 2002 Aegis Award for a four-minute music video about his home nation that he produced for Elon University.

The Aegis Awards are a video industry competition for peer recognition of outstanding video productions and non-network TV commercials. "The Jordan Experience" was honored in the Promotional/ Sales category for its outstanding production quality by a panel of judges representing industry professionals from around the USA.

Al-Majali, a Jordanian student, brought Elon equipment home during the summer of 2002 to shoot and direct the video, which highlights the beauty of Jordan by examining the contrasts between its history and its modernity. He is the recipient of the first King Hussein Scholarship at Elon.

"[The award] is a dream come true," said Al-Majali. "This shows us that we can compete on an international level and be recognized. I thank all of those who helped in creating this work."

Al-Majali is also featured as the "talent of the month" in the February edition of On-Campus magazine, a leading youth publication in Jordan.
