WIT Magazine Receives CASE Awards in "Best Overall" and "Best Writing" Categories
Boston, MA—January 12, 2012—Wentworth Institute of Technology’s alumni publication, WIT magazine, has been awarded with two medals by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) in the CASE District I Communications Awards competition. The magazine received a silver medal for “Best Writing” and a bronze medal for “Best Overall”—silver was the top award in both categories.
WIT magazine competed against seven other alumni publications with circulations of 30,000 to 74,999. The CASE District I judges mentioned “The Codebreakers” and “Talk to the Hands” stories from the Spring 2011 issue as examples of WIT magazine’s strong and balanced style, and they appreciated the “successful minimalist approach” as well as the way the magazine’s visuals assist in carrying the stories.
The silver medal was the only “Best Writing” medal awarded by CASE in WIT magazine’s category. Judges said the magazine packs “the maximum punch per page” and were pleasantly surprised by the voice and style of the articles. Also noted by judges were the magazine’s color palette, strong photography and illustration, and themed content such as the Summer 2011 “Earth Issue.”
