The awards include two Grand Golds for Texas Tech magazine Evermore.

The awards for Texas Tech University's Office of Communications & Marketing continue to pile up, with the university's magazine Evermore claiming two Grand Gold CASE Circle of Excellence awards.

Alongside the two Grand Gold awards, Evermore claimed three Gold awards, one Silver and one Bronze, and the Office of Communications & Marketing claimed one other Silver award for the digital story “A Fandom Turned Full Circle.”

"It's such an honor to receive awards on an international level," said Glenys Young, the university's director of storytelling and editor of Evermore. "Each of these recognitions shows us that the story of Texas Tech is resonating not just with our community of Red Raiders, but also with communicators around the world. We take great pride in the work we do, and to have our work play a part in furthering Texas Tech's legacy is the greatest honor of all."

Evermore has already had a productive run through awards season, having been honored with a Bronze Anvil, signifying it as the best public relations magazine in the country, and a global PRINT Award in the Editorial category for its outstanding design. 

Evermore received Grand Gold CASE awards for Evermore No. 2 in the Promotional Publications category and for the magazine as a whole in the Design – Periodicals and Magazines category.

“We're honored to win these distinguished CASE Circle of Excellence awards, which are considered the Oscars of higher education, and to be recognized among this selection of outstanding work,” said Armando Godinez, Evermore's creative lead. “We continue to add impressive wins throughout multiple industry awards competitions this year and look forward to finishing out the year strong. Evermore continues to showcase our Red Raider talent through the design, storytelling and grit among the pages of the latest issues and will continue to deliver high-quality content in the future and beyond.”

Evermore No. 3 was honored with a Gold CASE award for Promotional Publications and the article “Remembering Columbia” from Evermore No. 3 won Gold in the Design – Illustration category. 

Evermore also collected a Gold in the Magazine – Alumni/General Interest (Printed Twice a Year) category. 

While Evermore collected a Silver and a Bronze to go along with the others, the magazine wasn't the only publication honored from the Office of Communications & Marketing. Writer Ashlyn Grotegut brought home a Silver award in the Writing – Profile (Less than 1000 words) category for her story about Texas Tech student Madison Hilliard and former Red Raider quarterback B.J. Symons. 

“Our focus is building emotional connections to the brand, and our emphasis on storytelling spans all we do,” said Vice President of Marketing and Communications Matt Dewey. “The reception and recognition for Evermore since its inception less than two years ago has been incredible. To have our digital publications also be recognized beside our magazine illustrates our team's and our institution's positive trajectory.”
