And the MAGGIE Award for the best overall in the category goes to … Santa Clara Magazine for the Winter 2013 edition, “Why Silicon Valley loves the humanities.” Presented by the Western Publishing Association for 63 years, the MAGGIEs are a regionwide competition. SCM competed in a category that included associations and nonprofits, along with university magazines. Other honorees at the awards presented in Los Angeles this May included Mother Jones and Variety.

Also regionally, the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) recognized the mag with a few 2014 medals: a silver for staff writing (a set of five articles that we describe as “Saintssinners, and seven minutes of terror”), and silver and bronze for photographer Charles Barry—for “Train ride,” a photo of U.S. Rep. Zoe Lofgren J.D. ’75, and “Studio portrait with a saint,” a portrait of the St. Clare statue that used to grace the front of the Mission Church.

The sage judges at CASE awarded a silver to SCU for the 2011–12 President’s ReportMomentum: Indicators of Success, and a gold medal for the video Become More.
