TWO, BYU’s dating magazine, has received two top national awards: the preeminent Magazine Pacemaker Award and the finalist award in the same category at the Associate Collegiate Press (ACP) national competition at the National College Media Convention in Washington, D.C.
In addition, TWO received an honorable mention for magazine design. Honorable mentions were also awarded to student journalists for their work — McKayla Robinson for multimedia feature story package of the year and Jenna Alton for feature story of the year, which were both published by the Daily Universe.
ACP is an educational association for collegiate journalism, media advisors and students that held its annual convention and awards presentation in November. The preeminent Pacemaker award has been given out each year since 1927 and has since expanded to different categories including online, newspaper, magazine and yearbook. A team of experts serve as judges and make decisions based on coverage and content, writing and reporting, leadership, design, photography and graphics.
