Inaugural Issue of WNE Magazine Among Four Gold Awards for University Publications

Western New England University was named among the top institutions in the nation in the 2018 Collegiate Advertising Awards and the 34th Annual Education Advertising Awards—two competitions designed to recognize higher education organizations for excellence in communications, marketing, advertising, and promotion of their schools. Western New England University and its creative partner Spark451 received a total of four “Gold” awards. Two gold awards were earned in the 2018 Collegiate Advertising Awards competition. One was for the inaugural issue of The Magazine of Western New England University and the other was for the vibrant Centennial Logo appearing in University communications and across campus this year. The University also garnered two gold awards from the 34th Annual Educational Advertising Awards competition for the What’s New at WNE brochure and the Centennial Logo. Judges in this competition present gold, silver, and bronze awards to those entrants whose programs and materials display exceptional quality, creativity, and message effectiveness. The magazine also won a bronze award at the Ad Club of Western Massachusetts 2019 Creative Awards.
