*Judges Special Recognition: Sam Mays – University of Tennessee/Phoenix Lit/Arts Magazine

*Judges Special Recognition: Phoneix is lovely, but it is not a magazine. It is a brochure. I think it is definitely worth recognition. It is exquisitely designed. Different use of styles and techniques. Removed this from the magazine category but wanted to recognize its attention to detail and how well thought out it is.

Scan does a really good job of graphic design and good communication to their audience.

What’s hard about this is that they are all different.

VOX being weekly is a huge challenge. There’s a few things inside that aren’t as tight as it should. It’s different week to week, but it is consistent and it is consistently good.

Inside has a good sense of its mission and its attitude. But at the same time also kind of refined. Excellent covers. Different kinds of story types as well. You want to sit down and read it.
