The Marketing and Communications Office for the University of Kentucky College of Engineering recently took honors at three different awards ceremonies.
At the annual Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) District III awards ceremony, the team earned a Grand Award (first place) for “Magazine Improvement,” an Award of Excellence (second place) for the “Total Website Design and Organization,” and a Special Merit Award (third place) for the illustration on the cover of the spring 2018 Kentucky Engineering Journal magazine. CASE District III consists of member institutions in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
Last month, the team won an award at the 2019 Lexington American Advertising Awards ceremony (also known as the ADDYs). Competing against advertising agencies and production companies in the Lexington area, the group’s “UKY Engineering Sneak Peek” video took gold in the “Branded Content & Entertainment for Online Film, Video & Sound, 60-seconds or less” category.
In December, CASE Kentucky, which comprises member institutions within the Commonwealth, awarded the office Grand Awards for the spring 2018 issue of Kentucky Engineering Journal (“Multi-Page Publication and Folder”) and the redesigned website.
The Marketing and Communications Office is led by Derrick Meads, senior director of marketing and communications. Aaron Camenisch serves as associate director of marketing, Kel Hahn as associate director of communications and Eric Sanders as media production manager.
