Envision Magazine Wins National Awards


Envision, a publication produced by the Andrews University Department of Communication, was recently named the best mobile publication in North America by the Associated Church Press (ACP). The award was announced at the oldest Christian press association's annual awards banquet, held in Chicago on April 25.

Envision’s prestigious "Best in Class" honor was one of five awards won by the Andrews University student publication from among 1,200 entries submitted for judging in the 2013 Best of the Christian Press Awards.

“We are indeed proud of the achievements of Debbie Michel and her students,” says Keith Mattingly, dean of the College of Arts & Sciences at Andrews University. “Particularly nice is the involvement of our students and their deserved recognition.”

Other award-winning entries by the student-produced magazine are:

  • Award of Excellence for Reporting and Writing: Feature Article, short format magazine ("Uncalled For? Women in the Seminary" by Melodie Roschman)
  • Award of Excellence for Student Publications (entire Envision staff)
  • Award of Merit for Reporting and Writing: Personally Useful Article ("Don't Follow Your Dreams: How to be Miserable, Waste Time and Live an Unsatisfying Life" by Melodie Roschman)
  • Honorable Mention: Art/Design/Graphics: Design Spread or Story ("From Fear to Eternity" spread by Kristiana Mitacek)
  • In addition to the printed version of the magazine, Andrews alumnus Kenty Ramdatt designed the mobile app, available on iOS and Android devices.

    “This is truly a great achievement,” says Duane McBride, chair of the Department of Behavioral Sciences and research professor of sociology. “We are all benefitted as Andrews faculty and students are recognized for their creative achievements.”

    Envision magazine is produced jointly each spring among three classes: publication production in the department of communication, studio photography in the department of photography, and publication design in the department of visual art and design.
