Month: May 2013
This year, I was selected again as a Juror for the 2013 Internet Advertising Competition presented by the Web Marketing Association (WMA).
MobileWebAward 2013 Competition Juror: Tyler Dockery
This week, I received this message after working furiously on entrants:
Welcome to the 2013 Internet Advertising Competition Judging.
The MobileWebAward judging process will begin today and will run until all the sites have been reviewed by three or more judges. We expect this to run until early May if necessary.
The judging of the 2013 MobileWebAward Competition is well underway and more than half of the entries have already received the necessary scores. The deadline for completing your assigned entries is Friday May 4th, so keep up your great work to complete your judging task.
In this competition, I judged many, many applicants. In the final round, I judged over 40 applicants. This was a fantastic competition, and I thoroughly enjoyed participating and representing both Wake Tech Community College and Dockery Design. I ran into some trouble with iTunes letting me download applications to my phone, but this was worked out with the MWA team.
Winners should be available: June 2013
This year, Wake Tech Community College has fully vetted College Central Network (CCN)and CollegeCentalNetwork.com as our official hiring network. College Central is one of the most visited entry-level job sites on the Internet. It provides both students and alumni with the ability to search their respective colleges’ or universities’ secure jobs databases, plus CCN’s Jobs Central national job board, with millions of jobs posted to date. The site also features valuable content geared toward entry-level job seekers.
In an effort to get the word out to students, the school has requested that the Advertising and Graphic Design Department run the materials in our classes as a project or extra credit project. Out of 4 potential candidates, 2 final winners were both chosen from my class: Kristine Kelly and Heather Heffner.
Its always a pleasure to create projects that the school can use. It was doubly good to see actual flyers hanging around the school. We were allowed to use the new Wake Tech Logo, and the students were able to add QR codes to the flyers, which was a really nice surprise. I think it earned us some extra points.
A special thank you to Rhonda Pickett for working with us on this job. The Advertising and Graphic Design Department at Wake Tech is always ready to help, whether its a class run by Tyler Dockery, Marsha Mills, Woody Hayes, or Alison Consol. Go Wake Tech!
