Alumni Magazine Awards

This program recognizes the excellent work, high journalistic quality, and strong reader engagement of Catholic college and university Alumni publications. Members and non-members of the Catholic Media Association enter this program to compete and compare their periodicals across six different categories. Print and digital publications are eligible to enter the contest. One entry will be named Alumni Magazine of the Year.

The CMA announces winning entry names in mid-April and mails award certificates in early May. The association announces recipient names at its Catholic Media Conference in June, publishes them in the Awards issues of The Catholic Journalist, and showcases them on the CMA website.
