BYU editing students received two national awards for publication

Editing students at Brigham Young University recently received two national awards for their winter 2011 publication of Stowaway Magazine, a student-produced travel publication.

The students received the Bronze Award for “Best Editorial/New Publication” in the Print/Magazine category of the 2011 ContentWise Magnum Opus Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Custom Media and the Award of Excellence for “Custom-Published Magazines and Journals” presented by the 2011 APEX Awards for Publication Excellence.

The niche magazine has been published since January 2010 and aims to inspire the imagination of college-aged readers and encourage them to explore the world, immerse themselves in new cultures and create their own adventures.

The magazine is published as part of a capstone class, and all class members contribute to planning, writing, editing, designing, creating web content and selling ads.
