The university’s Office of Communications and Marketing has won several large-scale awards for its work over the past year.
The Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) Region III presented six awards, including one top award, at its conference held in Atlanta February 19-22. CASE awarded a first prize for the 2010 Chancellor’s Annual Report in the crowded category of university annual reports and a second place for the overall launch of the campus’s Civility and Community campaign.The year-long commemoration of the fiftieth Anniversary of African Achievement received a third place prize, as did Quest, the university’s research magazine produced by the Office of Communications and Marketing and the Office of Research. Along with recognition for the magazine, a story in the fall 2011 issue about Governor’s Chair Brian Wirth titled “Your Mileage May Vary,” received third place in the news and feature writing category. The office’s summer redesign of the Ready for the World website also won a third place.
The office also won an international Telly award—the top prize—for the video “A Call for Civility.” Produced by the UT’s Video and Photography Department, the powerful-black-and white video has been shown in classrooms and events throughout the past year, since the April 2011 civility launch on campus. The thirty-second annual Telly Awards received more than 11,000 entries from all fifty states and five continents.
All work involved the collaboration of Creative Communications, Media and Internal Relations, and Video and Photography. Learn more about the Office of Communications and Marketing.
