Howard Receives 2012 APEX Awards for Publication Excellence

WASHINGTON (August 21, 2012) -- The Office of University Communications is pleased to announce that Howard’s 2010-2011 Annual Report and Winter 2012 Howard Magazine , “Quest for Global Solutions” received the 2012 APEX Awards for Publications Excellence. For the last three years, the Howard Magazine has received APEX Awards for Magazine and Journal Design and Layout. This is the first time that the annual report has received the award and the first time that the magazine has received the award for the entire issue. There were approximately 3,500 entries in the overall competition.

“In every edition of Howard Magazine, our main objective is to feature alumni, faculty, students and staff who perpetuate the legacy of excellence at Howard University,” said Raven Padgett, editor of Howard Magazine and publications manager for the University. “In this particular edition, we featured outstanding faculty members who are seeking global solutions to society’s pressing issues. Winning this award, while sharing their research with our internal and external audiences, is such an honor. And as we move forward, we hope that the magazine continues to reinforce the extraordinary research and scholarship that so many members of the Howard community are engaged in.”

The APEX Awards for Publication Excellence is an annual competition for publishers, editors, writers and designers who create print, web, electronic and social media. The awards are sponsored by the editors of Writing That Works: The Business Communications Report.

The Winter 2012 Howard Magazine focused on the innovative and global research that faculty members are currently engaged in, including helping to develop secure wireless communication systems for U.S. railways and designing drugs to fight HIV/AIDS. The annual report’s winning entry shares the University’s progress over the past two years and highlights the efforts to enhance and advance Howard’s legacy of excellence.
