UGA’s Division of Marketing & Communications won two national awards from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education. Photographer Andrew Davis Tucker won a bronze award for his photographs in the “Ga. Fishes Field Course Series,” which documented the coastal portion of a 2015 Maymester course at the UGA Marine Institute on Sapelo Island.

The division also won a bronze award for its spring 2015 Commencement social media campaign. The multifaceted approach to celebrating graduation focused on informational posts, telling the stories of graduating students and sharing alumni advice with the graduating class.
