Miami wins Clarion Award
OXFORD, Ohio -- Miami University's publications department has won a Clarion Award from the 1998 Clarion Competition, sponsored by The Association for Women in Communications.
"Campus Connections," a publication used in student recruitment that highlights Miami's diversity, earned top honors in the category for external audience brochures/nonprofit.
"We're thrilled to receive this recognition," said Arlene Werts, director of publications. "The Clarion is one of the country's premiere awards competitions for communications. To be included in the company of "The New Yorker," "Newsweek," and "Dateline NBC" is an honor and a testament to the quality of work done by Miami staff in publications and admissions."
Judges' comments for "Campus Connections" included: "What set this apart was the creativity of approach and the ability to pull it off. The effort and passion that was expended made a difference. The people were credible. The design was exciting but clean enough that it didn't get in the way of communicating."
Named for the medieval trumpet known for its clarity, the Clarion program honors excellence across all communications disciplines, including advertising, public relations, marketing, print journalism, graphic design, photography, books and CDs, and broadcasting and on-line journalism.
This year's 97 winners came from large and small media companies, corporations, businesses, nonprofit associations and institutions.
