1st: Stephanie Meredith The Daily News – Ball State University, “Desirable No. 1: Harry Potter”
“The paper showed a really good execution. They took a risk on a feature approach to a 1A from typography to the treated background in order to make it look like the Daily Prophet. It works really well for them.”
1st: Kimberly Barner The Daily Collegian – Penn State, “May No Act of Ours Bring Shame?”
“They manged to start with a clean slate and use headlines and photos to answer questions most important to the readers. They tossed out the traditional layout in choice for an all-refer full page, used to scan through and understand what was a huge, HUGE news story for them that day.
