CAM, the University’s alumni magazine, has won two prestigious international awards.

The magazine has been named 2010 Robert Sibley Magazine of the Year, becoming the first ever non-US-based publication in the award’s 67-year history to win this prize.

The magazine also beat alumni publications from around the world to win a Gold Award in the category of College and University General Interest Magazines with Circulations over 75,000.

The prizes are awarded by CASE, the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education, and judged by a panel of experts. This year, 615 higher education institutions from around the world submitted more than 2700 entries in the Circle of Excellence Awards programme.

“We are absolutely delighted to have won such a prestigious prize, and to be the first non-US institution to have done so,” said CAM’s editor, freelance journalist Mira Katbamna.

The Easter issue of CAM (see link above right), which has just started arriving on doorsteps of alumni around the world, features Michael Bywater on the importance of eating together, Tom Hodgkinson on the pleasures of punting and an interview with departing Vice-Chancellor, Professor Dame Alison Richard, by Ed Stourton (Trinity). There is a direct link to a pdf of the interview, also above right.

CAM is published three times a year and is sent free to all University alumni. It is editorially independent, designed by Paul Oldman at Cambridge design consultancy, Smith.

CASE is one of the largest international associations of education institutions, serving more than 3400 universities, colleges, schools and related organisations in 61 countries, providing professional development, information and standards in the fields of education fundraising, communications, marketing and alumni relations.
