Durham Tech marketing department wins top regional print advertising award

The Durham Tech Marketing and Communications Department took the top prize for Print Advertisement in a regional competition with peer institutions this week.

The submission took Gold place in the 2017 Medallion Awards District 2 competition, which included multiple states in the southeastern United States. The competition is organized through the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations.

The advertisement featured photography by Director of Marketing and Communications Nathan Hardin and design work by Production Manager Heather Remley. The submission promoted the College and the Durham Tech Foundation’s impact at home and abroad, and highlighted Durham Tech Student Mekenzie Keese during a Center for the Global Learner trip to Ghana in March.

The advertisement was published in the June/July issue of Durham Magazine this year.

Following Durham Tech in the Print Advertisement category was Wake Technical Community College in second and Wallace State Community College (Ala.) in third.

It was the College’s second Medallion Award win in two years. Hardin won third place in 2016 for Feature Writing for a series on Durham Tech students’ trip to Cuba.
