Distraction magazine and its website, distractionmagazine.com, have both been announced as Pacemaker finalists.
Presented annually by the Associated Collegiate Press, the Pacemaker awards recognize collegiate publications for their content, design, photography, and graphics.
The stakes were high in both categories; the judges narrowed down 96 magazines to 22 finalists, and 137 online entries to 30 finalists.

The Crowns are honors given by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association and are the highest award a publication can earn from CSPA. Apple Awards, given in honor of David L. Adams, are a Best in Show award given each year at the CMA Spring Conference in New York City.
