Our award winning alumni magazine

Our Advancement team have scooped two prestigious awards – one for their Click crowd funding platform and another for their new look alumni magazine Essex Effect.

  • The alumni magazine was recognised with a Silver Award in the CASE Circle of Excellence Awards. The magazine is published annually and read by over 50,000 alumni worldwide. It received the award for improvement in magazine publishing and is the only UK publication represented in the Awards. The judges praised it’s creative design and compelling content and said it reflected the unique character of the University.
  • Click was awarded the Gold prize in the Challenge Grant & Matching Gift program category. Not only was Essex the only UK university recognised in this category, but Click was the only crowdfunding program worldwide to receive any prize at the CASE Circle of Excellence awards. Click was awarded the Gold prize in recognition of its hugely successful matchfunding program for student fundraising. Click uses money raised from alumni and friends of the University to match the fundraising endeavours of students, £1 for £1. The scheme has helped 118 student groups raise a total of £161,000 towards a wide range of student experience projects, encompassing arts, sports, societies, volunteering, internships and student entrepreneurship.
