Pinnacles

To complete the recent showcase of the best online, broadcast and print collegiate media, CMA announces 2013-14’s top college newspapers, finalists for the Pinnacle Awards.

Finalists for other organizational Pinnacles — college media’s best websites, magazines, TV and radio stations and yearbooks — have also been released this week.

Winners will be honored at #collegemedia14, the National College Media Convention, Oct. 29-Nov. 2 in Philadelphia. Join us by registering here.

Individual Pinnacle winners (in advertising, broadcast, design, online, photo, sports and writing categories) will also be announced at the convention.

You can see multiple issues of each finalist newspaper through the links below. Share the winners and their work: http://bit.ly/1ByqxGk And if you do so via social media, tag CMA: @collegetalk.
