UCT scoops top honours at MACE Awards
UCT walked away with top honours at the recent Marketing, Advancement and Communication in Education (MACE) gala dinner held in Durbanville.
The dinner was the highlight of the two-day MACE conference, which was attended by marketers and communicators from national higher and further education institutions.
UCT received 16 Awards of Merit, four of which were awarded to the Centre for Higher Education Development (CHED) and 12 to the Communication and Marketing Department (CMD). The university also received a Gold Award of Excellence in the media division for the coverage of the June 2016 graduation season.
“We are extremely proud that the work of the CMD team has been recognised among our peers,” said Kylie Hatton, Deputy Director of CMD. “While it has been a challenging and hard-working year for the team, we have produced some exceptional work of which we can be proud.”
These awards are given annually to higher education practitioners in recognition of excellence in the communication and development fields.
