About the entry
The submitted issues include a recipe, an oral history, a photo essay, hand-drawn maps, a spread of tattoos and a page devoted to what a terrible mid-1970s football team can teach us about how to fail spectacularly. These are great examples of how University of Richmond Magazine presents typical subjects in atypical ways, both editorially and through design choices.
From the Judges' Report
The University of Richmond Magazine was true to their approach of presenting typical material in an atypical way (e.g., the birds-eye view of campus captured the beauty of the campus in a unique way.) The employee tattoos spread that opened the winter magazine and the spider spread that opened up the spring/summer magazine was bold and definitely had a cool factor.
The magazine is full of excellent storytelling. The swim/dive story was as suspenseful as any novel and the review of Wyatt Tee Walker's life is a wonderful example of smart editing; the editors let the story tell itself. The “The Mountain in Him” featured possessed great photography and a beautifully illustrated map of Alaska. There were many fun and interesting stories to read in this large (in size) and bold magazine.
