University of Utah Magazine takes home top honors

It’s award season for more than just TV, music and movies. The recently redesigned and relaunched University of Utah Magazine (formerly Continuum) has taken home several top prizes and recognitions for the most recent issues.

The awards include Best Print Publication by Content Marketing World and Ragan PR Daily for the nonprofit category. Additionally, the website was just given a Platinum Award from the MarCom Awards. And Utah Magazine will have several spreads on display at the Gateway on in October as part of the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) competition, where the magazine was selected as part of the Top 100 Works from Utah Creatives.

“We couldn’t be prouder to receive these recognitions,” says Melody Murdock, editor of Utah Magazine. “It’s a testament to the transformative work being done at the U and by our outstanding community of alumni, donors and employees.”

The University of Utah Magazine is printed three times a year and explores the traditions, heritage and evolving excellence of Utah’s flagship public institution of higher education. Faculty and staff can subscribe to the magazine here.
