Chronicle wins ACP awards

The Chronicle won two Best of Show awards this weekend at the 2003 National College Media Convention in Dallas. The convention, the largest in the world for student media, is sponsored by the Associated College Press and brings together almost every college newspaper, magazine and broadcast program in the United States.

The Chronicle captured fourth place in the Best of Show four-year daily tabloid category, which honors a single issue from the current academic year.

"The Chronicle staff is extremely proud of the recognition from ACP, especially in light of all of the recent changes to The Chronicle," said Editor Alex Garinger. "It reaffirms what we've been working so hard on for the past several months--from revamping design to providing comprehensive news, sports and arts and entertainment coverage to our readers."

TowerView, The Chronicle's monthly news perspective magazine, won second place in the Best of Show feature magazine category, which honors a single issue from the current calendar year.

"I'm incredibly excited by the progress we've made this semester with TowerView," said Tyler Rosen, the magazine's editor. "I'm delighted to see the staff rewarded for its massive improvements in terms of stories, design and photographs."

Earlier this year, The Chronicle's 98th volume was named a finalist for the Pacemaker award, the nation's top honor for college newspapers. The advertising staff also won an honorable mention in the Advertising/Editorial Supplement category. Those awards were handed out this weekend in Dallas as well.
