College Media Snow Fall Challenge entrant: The Baylor Lariat

all hallow's eve

Monday, I announced the winner of the College Media Snowfall Challenge: The Daily Bruin for In The Shadows.

I am going to share the other two entrants, because the work they produced was worthy of recognition, and if I could, I’d award them all prizes. A reminder: This was a first-past-the-post contest. I did not judge the subject matter in naming the winner.

The second entrant was The Baylor Lariat, with a more “light-hearted” multimedia presentation around a Halloween theme: All Hallow’s Eve.

There are actually two parallax-scrolling pages here, with videos at the bottom of each page and numerous photographs to accompany the writing. The site is responsive, as shown in an iPhone screenshot. One minor quibble with the overall design is the readability of the white text when it’s positioned over photos in the background, however, it’s a visually striking piece of work overall.
