After careful consideration by the Associated College Press, the Summer 2016 issue of Detours Magazine has been selected as one of the 22 finalists for the Magazine Pacemaker Award.

Detours Editor-in-Chief Mary Tomlinson weighs in on the exciting news for the magazine.

“I was ecstatic to find out the Summer 2016 issue had been selected as a Pacemaker Finalist, especially when seeing the quality of the other finalists — we’re in good company,” Tomlinson says. “I’m looking forward to continuing this level of success with the staff for the upcoming Winter 2016 issue.”

The Pacemaker award is collegiate journalism’s preeminent award, where a team of professionals judge collegiate publications based on coverage and content, quality of writing and reporting, leadership, design, photography and graphics.

The winners will be announced at the ACP National College Media Convention at the end of the month. Click here for a full list of Detours Magazine’s awards.
