First Place Gold Circle Awards
March 25, 2009
The winners of the annual Gold Circle Awards from Columbia University were just announced and I am included as a first place recipient for both my portfolio of editorial cartoons and my portfolio of illustration. Here is a little bit more about these awards:
Gold Circle Awards are offered to recognize superior work by student journalists usually as individuals but sometimes as an entire staff working with either print or online media. These media are published in schools or colleges throughout the United States and in overseas schools following an American plan of education…
Judges are experienced journalists and educators familiar with the context surrounding student journalism as produced in schools and colleges. In recent years, more than 13,000 entries have been submitted for this annual competition and about 1,000 awards were given in the various categories.
Awards are announced and presented at the Association’s annual convention in March in New York City.
