Corks & Curls Executive Board
We are proud to announce the revival of University of Virginia’s beloved yearbook, Corks & Curls. After a brief hiatus, the C&C returned in the 2014-2015 academic year. Drawing from traditional elements used in previous books, the newest Corks & Curls appeals to students, alumni and parents alike. You certainly don’t need to be a current student to appreciate the book. The 2014-2015 publication will be arriving in October 2015. Details about ordering your 2015-2016 UVA yearbook can be found on the "Purchase" page. Please explore our website to learn more about the project. Thank you for your interest!

Corks & Curls serves as an informational record as well as a memory and historical reference for the students, faculty, and community at-large. The yearbook covers academics, sports, student activities, and student accomplishments with fairness. The staff strives to capture the academic year at UVA as accurately as possible. It is our goal to eternalize the actions, thoughts, and sentiments of our student body in each book.
Our designers are each assigned 1 to 2 spreads per deadline. They collaborate with a photographer and copy writer to develop integrated and engaging content. The Design team is broken up into groups led by Junior Editors, and these groups meet once every two weeks to review spread progress with photographers and copy writers.
Photographers are assigned 3-4 spreads per deadline and are responsible for capturing the excitement and essence of all of University of Virginia's events. Don't worry if you do not own a professional camera; we have equipment for our staff photographers to use.
Copy writers are assigned 2-3 spreads per deadline. Writers interview individuals for their pieces and generate feature driven articles. Along with designers and photographers, copy writers meet with Junior Editors during department meetings to coordinate with other members working on their spread team.
The marketing staff is responsible for the business strategy of the yearbook. They advertise and develop the Corks & Curls brand. The marketing team is divided into two committees: one that coordinates and leads the execution of marketing campaigns and the other that generates artistic and promotional items.
