Several communications departments at the University have won awards from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education in the District III Competition, for all universities in the Southeast.

The Office of Development's communications department won five awards.
The "Beyond a Billion" advertising campaign won a Special Merit Award in the paid advertising category. The ads show examples of how the Campaign for the University of Virginia is benefiting students and faculty. Emma Edmunds, senior writer, and Bill Sublette, director of development communications, wrote the copy for the ads, which were designed by Leslie Doughty, with photos taken by Thomas Cogill.

"For Every Branch" materials, produced for the 25th anniversary of the Lawn Society last April, won an Award of Excellence in print design. The materials were designed by Doughty and produced by the development communications and donor relations staffs.

Two awards went to the Department of Environmental Sciences' fund-raising case statement, produced under the direction of James Galloway, chair of the department. It received an Award of Excellence in the direct mail category, and a Special Merit Award in the fund-raising publications category. Sublette wrote the case statement and Doughty designed the material. Photos were taken by Sublette, Stephanie Gross and Jackson Smith.

A Special Merit Award in the educational fund-raising project category went to a page-a-day calendar of current and historic University photographs for members of the Rotunda Society (annual giving donors of $2,500 or more). It was designed by Leonard Phillips, with captions by Susan Tyler Hitchcock and Sublette, and produced for the Office of Annual Giving.

The television news department of University Relations won an Award of Excellence in the audio-visual communication division for four promotional videos about "The Campaign is Making its Mark."

The University's home page Web site received a CASE Grand Award for design and implementation. It was produced by Director of University Web Communications Nancy Tramontin. In addition, the President's Annual Report, another project handled through her office, and designed by Jim Gibson, won a Special Merit Award.
