CAM Wins National Cover Contest
Bookmark and Share


CAM thanks the many alumni who voted for our entry in the American Society of Magazine Editors’ Best Cover Contest! Because of you, we won the overall Readers’ Choice Award for “Sugar Shock,” the cover of our March/April 2016 issue—beating out such competition as Newsweek, Wired, and the New Yorker. Designed and executed by art director Jen Infante using real sugar and glue (to highlight a feature story on an alum’s research into the dangers of fructose), the work was a twist on Edvard Munch’s classic painting The Scream.
