Daily News takes Ind Collegiate Press awards

The Ball State Daily News took 28 awards in the annual Indiana Collegiate Press Association contest on Saturday, including first-place honors in non-deadline news, sports and features photo, illustration and advertising.

Dylan Buell won both first and second place in Best Sports Photo.

“This photo really captures the tension and movement that the play had,” the judge said of Buell’s first-place picture. “The defender feels like he is going to keep moving and fall out of the photo.”

Bobby Ellis won first place in Best Feature Photo for “Reaching Greater Heights,” of which the judge said: “The cool angle of this photo reflects how exciting a rock climbing competition can be.”

Tiffany Ruesser took first place in Best Illustration for her “Super Cardinal,” a Page 1 illustration playing off the “Superman” theme for this year’s Homecoming football game.

“Possibly the best single page in the entire competition,” the judge wrote “Love this illustration, and spoofing the Daily Planet took this page to the next level. Clean, sophisticated and just awesome.”

A records-based reporting project by Editor-in-Chief Sarah Boswell won first place in the Best Non-Deadline News Reporting category.

“Strong use of public records law to show how BSU police deal with complaints about campus police officers,” the judge wrote.

A dozen other Daily News editorial entries won awards in the Newspaper Division I category for dailies printing three or more times per week.

In the Advertising division, Madison Stevens of the Daily News won three first-place awards for Most Creative Use of Ad Copy, Best Ad layout and Best Use of Photography or Graphic Art.

Fellow designer Elizabeth Wojdyla took a first-place award for Best Electronic Ad – Display, and nine other Daily News entries also won awards in the Advertising category.
