Perspectives, the Ohio University magazine covering research, scholarship and creative activity, has taken home two silver medals from the national CASE awards competition.
CASE, the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, sponsors both regional and national competitions that recognize best practices in higher education communication.
Perspectives tied for a silver medal in the Research Magazines category along with periodicals from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of Missouri at Columbia, both identified as peer institutions by Ohio University.
The magazine also tied for a silver medal in the Visual Design in Print category. That award recognizes the work of art director Christina Ullman, an Ohio University alumna and former faculty member. Of the 530 entries judged in the category, 12 gold medals, 16 silver medals and 21 bronze medals were awarded.
Both medals were based on the magazine's spring 2006 and fall 2006 issues. Ohio University has been a consistent contender in CASE competitions in recent years.
"It's an honor to receive this national award with our talented colleagues," said Andrea Gibson, editor of Perspectives and director of the Office of Research Communications.
"The silver medal awards for Perspectives magazine are testament to the magazine's impact as a tool for enhancing Ohio University's national reputation in research, scholarship and creative activity," said Lauren Bryant, president of the University Research Magazine Association and editor of Indiana University's research magazine.
"More and more colleges and universities are producing informative and intellectually stimulating publications to spotlight the local and global impact of research, and Perspectives clearly ranks high among them," Bryant said.
The magazine has been produced twice a year since 1997.
