Bucknell's "Be Part of the Picture" package was selected from a field of 27 entries and included a direct-mail brochure, an e-solicitation and video, and a thank-you postcard, all of which were written, designed and filmed by Bucknell Communications staff. The campaign used a mosaic image of Bertrand Library made up of 2,000 individual Bucknell photographs to illustrate how thousands of Bucknellians create one strong institution. Staff centrally involved in the project included Donna Glass, graphic designer; Steve Gibson, video and new media developer; and Christina Masciere Wallace, senior writer.
