The Tennessee College Public Relations Association honored Vanderbilt University with 13 communication awards, including “Best of Show” for a Vanderbilt Magazine illustration, during the organization’s spring conference.
An original illustration of John Seigenthaler published in the magazine’s summer 2014 issue was awarded “Best of Show” from among 210 entries. The illustration, created by Nashville artist Wayne Brezinka, also received a Gold Award in the Illustration category.
Vanderbilt’s communication initiatives received eight other Gold (first-place) awards:
MyVU‘s fall 2013 and spring 2014 issues
School of Engineering, Solutions 2014
Two Vanderbilt entries received Silver awards:
School of Engineering, “New device allows brain surgery through cheek, helping people with epilepsy”
That’s Vanderbilt, “Smith Hall honors legacy of influential Nashville preacher”
One Vanderbilt entry was awarded the Bronze Award:
School of Engineering, “Augmented Reality Goundbreaking”
Entries were submitted by universities and colleges across the state for the annual competition, which was judged by advertising, marketing and public relations professionals not affiliated with any particular school. This year’s conference, “Meeting in the Mountains,” took place May 27-29 in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.
