UNK- “New Frontiers,” the University of Nebraska at Kearney research magazine, has received regional awards in two major competitions, along with awards earned by two printed pieces produced for the UNK Office of Admissions.

“New Frontiers,” which is published jointly by the Office of Graduate Studies and Research and the Office of University Relations was designed by Randy Mattley, UNK director of Advertising & Creative Services. Glennis Nagel, director of Media Communications, was the managing editor.

The magazine earned a Gold Award (first place) for overall excellence in communications (design) in the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) Region VI competition. There are more than 80 member institutions of higher education in the eight-state region, which includes Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming and Nebraska. “New Frontiers” placed ahead of finalists in the category from the University of Denver, University of Kansas, Kansas State University, Doane College and Iowa State University.

Glennis Nagel, UNK director of Media Relations, earned a Silver Award (second place) for excellence in writing in the science/technology/research article or feature category for a feature she wrote for “New Frontiers.” Only two entries in that category received awards. First place went to a submission from Iowa State University.

The magazine has also won a gold (first place) at the Heartland Print Gallery Show. The magazine took the first place award based on the design/layout, and printing quality and execution. Heartland Print Gallery is a competition among printers in Nebraska, South Dakota and Iowa.

“It’s the event for the print industry in this region,” Mattley said. “The Heartland Print Gallery Show celebrates the best-of-the-best in printing for our region.”

A direct mail postcard, “UNK is Big on Small,” also won a gold, and the UNK Admissions Viewbook won a silver (second place).
