17 New Education Advertising Awards in 2017 (And Another Best of Show!)

March 01, 2017

We are proud to announce that we had 17 wins in the 32nd Annual Educational Advertising Awards (formerly the HEMR Awards). Over 2,250 entries were received from more than one-thousand colleges, universities, and secondary schools from all fifty states and several foreign countries.

We picked up awards for a range of work, including a “Best of Show” award for the Niagara University Viewbook! With that win, we’ve now won an Educational Advertising Awards “Best of Show” every year for the last decade.

We’re thrilled to have won for this piece in particular; at a time when so much of what we do is moving online and being reduced to micro-interactions, this piece takes advantage of the physicality of a printed piece. Setting Niagara apart from a largely homogenous field of competitors, the large viewbook has waterfall pages that interact with the neighboring spreads to share a deeper story—taking time to fully explore and making Niagara memorable. Check it out:

This year we were able to work on a couple advancement campaigns, and we’re happy that we won several awards for both Lycoming College’s “Campaign for a Greater Lycoming,” and Ursinus College’s “Keep the Promise Campaign.” CCA has always created very successful enrollment marketing materials, but our team appreciates the opportunity to conceptualize, write, and design campaign that will be reach out to alumni—some of which we helped recruit!
