LMU Magazine has been honored with several awards this summer by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education’s annual competition for college publications.
On June 4, CASE announced its 2014 Circle of Excellence Awards, giving LMU Magazine the gold award for general excellence in college and university magazines (circulation 30,000 to 74,999). Jon Rou, LMU’s university photographer, won a silver award for Photographer of the Year.
LMU Magazine also won a silver award in cover design for the winter 2013 issue (“A Fish Tale”) and a bronze award for an illustration by Emiliano Ponzi that accompanied “Assisi Road,” a feature essay by Alan Figueroa Deck, S.J., professor of theological studies, about the election of Pope Francis (summer 2013, Page 37).
Separate awards for general magazine excellence were given for magazines with a circulation less than 30,000 and for those with a circulation more than 75,000. Previous winners of gold, silver and bronze awards for general excellence in the mid-range category that included LMU Magazine are Princeton, Dartmouth, Stanford, Denison University, Goldsmiths (University of London), Middlebury and the College of Charleston.
CASE is an international association of education institutions that serves professionals working in university advancement, alumni relations, communications and other areas. LMU Magazine has won 26 such regional and national awards since its relaunch in 2010, from CASE, Graphis Design Annual, the Society of Publication Designers, and the University and College Design Association.
