Columbia, Mo. (Feb. 25, 2011) — The hardcover commemorative book celebrating the first century in journalism education at the Missouri School of Journalism and the dedication of the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute has won a Silver ADDY award from the Kansas City chapter of the American Advertising Federation.
“The J-School: Celebrating One Hundred Years in Journalism and the Reynolds Journalism Institute Dedication” celebrates the history, pride and influence of the School. Approximately 600 photos, advertisements and other visuals from University Archives, the Savitar and private collections are included in the 240-page full-color book, which measures 12 x 12 inches.
The commemorative book was made possible through the generosity of two major sponsors: VML, a worldwide interactive digital agency, and Walsworth Publishing Company, world-renowned for its work in the printing industry.
“We’re honored and thrilled to receive this industry recognition as it speaks to the School’s rich history and tradition in journalism education,” said Suzette Heiman, the School’s director of planning and communications who edited “The J-School” book.
Kansas City’s ADDY Awards program is the most competitive in the nation. More entries are submitted for this chapter’s competition than any other AAF chapter awards program in the United States. More than 850 Midwest advertising and marketing professionals attended the Feb. 19 awards ceremony at the Midland Theater in Kansas City, Mo.
Those wishing to purchase a copy of “The J-School” should contact the Missouri School of Journalism.
