Campus Technology Named Best New Trade Publication

April 26, 2005. Chatsworth, CA. Campus Technology, the only monthly publication focusing exclusively on the use of technology across all areas of higher education, was honored with a Maggie Award for Best New Publication/Trade from the Western Publications Association (WPA), an organization that has represented magazine publishers and businesses within the publishing industry for 54 years.

Campus Technology, a 101communications’ publication, launched last October, building on the 16-year legacy of the highly respected Syllabus magazine. The publication has a circulation of 50,000 qualified, senior-level higher education management readers. Each issue serves as a resource for administrative and academic IT leaders, providing in-depth coverage of specific technologies, their uses and implementations on campus. The November 2004 issue was submitted for consideration by the judges.

“The entire Campus Technology team is thrilled and humbled by this recognition of our new magazine,” said Katherine Grayson, Editor-in-Chief. “When we began to develop the publication last July, our number one goal was to provide the best, most complete editorial information available to higher education IT leaders. Each story, photo, column and feature is developed with that in mind. To be singled out among our peers for achieving that goal is truly gratifying.”

“A tremendous effort went into the design and launch of Campus Technology,” said Mark Sande, General Manager of 101communications’ Education Technology Group. “Kathy, along with our Editor, Mary Grush; Associate Editor, Claudia Linh, and Art Director Scott Rovin, were tireless in their dedication to developing the very best publication for our readers and advertisers. We’re pleased that both of those constituencies have responded very well to Campus Technology; we look forward to its continued growth in the years ahead.”

WPA’s 54th Annual Maggie Awards ceremony was held April 22 in Los Angeles. This year’s competition included nearly 1,900 entries from magazines published West of the Mississippi River or distributed only West of the Mississippi River. Eighty-seven Maggies were awarded for editorial, design, and promotional excellence. Campus Technology faced competition from Elearning Magazine, IDEA Fitness Journal, Redmond (another 101communcations publication) and Roast Magazine in the category for trade publications with circulation over 50,000.
