2018 Awards

1st Place - Illustrations, Judges Comments: "A poignant tribute, made more so by its simplicity. Just the names and sketched faces of five people lost in senseless tragedy. It really added to the personal connection, even though the editorialist didn't actually know the victims."
2nd Place - Illustrations, Judges Comments: "This really works. A clever interpretation of the glass being half-full or half-empty depending on who's offering up an opinion, in this case how readers feel about the USA."
1st Place - Entertainment, Judge Comments: "This is a really great series of ads around a simple concept. I'm sure readers look forward to seeing what the next month will bring! Simple and consistent messaging. Well done!"
