College Media Association’s second annual Pinnacle Awards were handed out today at the Associated Collegiate Press/College Media Association conference in New Orleans. The Pendulum had already been named a finalist in two categories: Best Multimedia Feature Presentation and Best Web Presence.
Well, today The Pendulum learned it won the Pinnacle Award for Best Multimedia Feature Presentation at the awards ceremony, with LSU and Baylor being the other two finalists in the competition. The impressive project that nabbed the organization the award? “Dr. Danieley’s lifetime of maroon and gold,” which was produced by Rebecca Wickel ’13 (former features editor), senior Jeff Stern (former online managing editor), Claire Esparros ’13 (former photo editor), Chris Bosak ’13 (former executive producer of “The Swing”) and Ronald Chang ’13 (former illustrator).
Congratulations to a great team of students on a great project. The honor is well deserved.
The Pendulum also received its finalist certificate for Best Web Presence. Drake University won the Pinnacle in that category, also beating out the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
This year, CMA received more than 250 entries from 62 colleges and universities for Pinnacle Awards consideration.
