UTD Mercury Takes it to a New Dimension
With Award for 3-D Edition

Nov. 14, 2007

The student-run UTD Mercury newspaper has recently won the Associated Collegiate Press Best of Show Award for a Special Edition.   

The newspaper received the award at the recent National College Media Convention in Washington, D.C. 

The award honored the creative efforts behind the Summer Orientation Issue, which was a “3-D orientation issue” complete with 3-D glasses affixed to the front of the paper. 

The issue gave freshmen and new students a comprehensive introduction to campus with a full-color center spread of 3-D photographs. 

UTD Mercury staffers produced the 40-page special issue over the summer during their regular summer publication schedule. 

 “It was a real achievement,” said Phyllis Blanck, associate dean of students at UT Dallas. “It was a very creative issue.”

The section bested entries from Virginia Polytechnic Institute, second place; and Southern Illinois University, third place.
