Bonnie Beatson and Teresa Pytel, graduate students in the
College of Communication, won first and third place, respectively,
for their logo designs for the 2006 AEJMC convention in San
Beatson’s design will also be used on all AEJMC publications
throughout the year and on conference materials related to the
organization’s upcoming event. She will also receive
cash awards for her winning entry.
As a contest rule, each school is allowed to submit 10 of their
best student designs to the competition each year. This is
the fifth year HPU has entered the competition.
Creating an entry for the contest was a class project in “Desktop
Publishing,” a course taught by Dr. Brian Cannon, assistant
professor of communication.
The students needed to research what landmarks or characteristics
would capture some flavor of the city the conference will be
held in and convey that in their design,” said Dr. Cannon. “Part
of the challenge is including the name of the agency and the
date of the conference.”
AEJMC is a nonprofit, educational association of journalism and
mass communication faculty, administrators, students, and media
professionals. Founded in Chicago, Il., in 1912, AEJMC has some
3,500 members around the world.
