Department of Journalism Recognition

Students and faculty in the Department of Journalism are driven to excel. We aren’t in it for the glory — but it’s sure satisfying when someone notices.

We are frequent award winners, so frequent that the list of recent awards is simply too long to reproduce. But here are some of the highlights:

  • The Ball State Daily News earns regular honors for excellence. Most recently, it won the Gold Crown award from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, was named the top Division I newspaper in Indiana and the top online news product in the state by the Indiana Collegiate Press Association, and took home two Pacemaker awards and 57 Gold Circles.
  • Ball Bearings  print and online magazine earned two first-place, two second-place, and four third-place awards from the Indiana Collegiate Press Association, plus several regional awards from the Society of Professional Journalists.
  • For the eighth year in a row, Ball State’s photojournalism program placed in the top 10 in the William Randolph Hearst Journalism Awards.
  • Our chapters of the American Advertising Federation and Public Relations Student Society of America regularly place highly in district and national competitions.
