2017 was another great ICA. Claes de Vreese was elected a fellow – becoming one of only about a dozen European fellows. Other award winners include Michael Hameleers (x2! in the Mass Comm and Communications & Technology sections), while Magdalena Wojcieszak and Rachid Azrout got an honourable mention as runner up in the prestigious Pol Com division Kaid-Sanders Article of the Year Award! Our alumnus Arjen van Dalen won the top paper award in Journalism studies and our former visitors in Amsterdam Moren Skovsgaard and Jakob Ohme (also both SDU) won top faculty and top student paper awards in Pol Comm. There were several other excellent paper presentations to boot! Congratulations all – we are proud!
