From the judges: We were impressed by the feature story, especially the creative illustrations used to tie everything together. The rest of the magazine featured clean design with thoughtful layout and content, as well as appealing photography. This was a compelling entry made more so by the small staff and low per-piece cost.

Title of entry: Campbell Magazine
About this entry: Our Fall 2019 edition of Campbell Magazine celebrated 132 years of "Amazing, Trailblazing Women" who shaped Campbell University — highlighting one woman for each decade of the school's existence.
But the reason for its inclusion in this new category is this — this magazine was a two-person effort.
• Editor Billy Liggett wrote much of this edition and designed the entire edition.
• Write Kate Stoneburner wrote a number of features and short stories, and she provided photography for the "Mission of Hope" piece.
There were a few freelancers (the illustration and photography), but for the most part, this is a two-person operation.
And we feel the product is right up there with magazines with much larger staffs.
