The Aviso AVW has been named a finalist for Associated Collegiate Press’s Pacemaker award in the online-only category for the second year in a row. The winners will be announced at the National College Media Convention, which runs from October 23-27 in New Orleans.
“I’m really impressed that our students are competitive on a national level,” said David Dixon, professor of communication arts and faculty advisor of The Aviso AVW. “Their work models how online media should serve their audiences.”
“I’m really excited and proud of the staff and I’m looking forward to continuing to improve,” said Blaire Thompson, editor-in-chief of The Aviso AVW.
The Pacemaker award is considered Associated Collegiate Press’s highest honor. According to the Associated Collegiate Press website, awards are based on design, ease of navigation, writing and editing, graphics and interactivity.
