The University of Miami’s Division of University Communications has been recognized for several projects during the past year in an international awards competition involving marketing and communication professionals.
The redesign of miami.edu, launched in April 2015, and the University’s signature magazine, Miami, received Platinum Awards in the 2015 MarCom Awards competition, which is administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals.
UM Communications’ project, Haiti Special Report [haiti.miami.edu], which chronicled the University’s work in Haiti during the five years following the 2010 earthquake, received a Gold Award.
Two projects received Honorable Mention Awards: a mini-documentary called “Collaborating with Purpose” that was part of the Haiti Special Report, and a publication developed for UM Libraries titled access: Reflections on Discovery and Growth at the University of Miami Libraries.
The competition attracted more than 6,500 entries from throughout the United States, Canada, and 15 other countries. Submissions came from corporate communication and marketing departments, advertising agencies, public relations firms, and freelancers.
