University staff members win 3 CASE awards

UGA communications, photography and design professionals were recognized with three awards at the Council for Advancement and Support of Education District III conference Feb. 15-18 in Orlando, Florida.

Wade Newbury, a senior graphic designer in the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources; Andrew Davis Tucker, a photographer in the Division of Public Affairs’ broadcast, video and photography unit; and the Discover UGA website were winners of district awards.

Newbury designed the recruitment brochure “A Classroom With a View,” which won the Award of Excellence in the graphic design unpublished works category.

Newbury and his colleagues put together a pocket folder with a magazine-type interior that included descriptions of Warnell programs, admission procedures, Warnell clubs and other student resources.

Tucker, a photographer in the Division of Public Affairs’ broadcast, video and photography unit, won a Special Merit Award in the photography-series category for “Medical Partnership Fourth Year.”

Tucker’s series covered the final year of the first-ever class of the GRU/UGA Medical Partnership. The images included scenes of students in rotations in doctors’ offices and hospitals; students learning and teaching in a volunteer community health clinic; students finding out about their residencies on Match Day; and students celebrating on graduation day.

The university also was honored with a Special Merit Award in the category of electronic and digital media online innovation/experimentation for the Discover UGA website,

Discover UGA, a project of the Public Affairs news service, is published based on a different theme every month. Themes are based on UGA’s 2020 strategic plan and other institutional priorities.

Discover UGA includes photographs, articles, news releases and infographics pertaining to each topic.
