The UMW Digital Communications office was recently honored to receive three awards for the Admissions microsite, “World Ready,” from the Education Digital Marketing Awards and CASE (Council for Advancement and Support of Education) District III.
The UMW entry in the Education Digital Marketing Awards competition (by the Higher Education Marketing Report) garnered both a Gold Award and a Bronze Award for the “Microsite” and “Admissions Website or Microsite,” categories respectively. These are national awards in a competition that “recognizes the best educational websites, digital content, electronic communications, mobile media and social media.”
The CASE District III award is a Special Merit Award in the category of “Electronic and Digital Media: Recruitment Website or Microsite.” The competition includes institutions in the southeastern states.
These awards represent a validation of the new, collaborative direction with the web and marketing at UMW. This project was the result of a successful team effort between Digital Communication, Marketing, the editorial staff, and Admissions.
