Caroline R. Jones, executive vice president and creative director of Mingo-Jones Advertising, Inc., was chosen as one of six recipients of the twelfth annual Matrix Awards for 1982.

The award, presented by the New York Chapter of Women in Communications, Inc., recognizes women for outstanding performance in six areas of communications: newspapers, magazines, advertising, books, public relations and broadcasting.

Ms. Jones, whose advertising career spans 17 years, was vice-president and creative supervisor at Batten, Barton, Durstine and Osborn, Inc., before joining Mingo-Jones. She was the first black woman to become vice president of a major advertising agency.

Nominations for Matrix Awards are made by the membership, and recipients this year were chosen by former winners in their respective categories. The matrix, symbol of the New York Chapter of WICI, is a metal mold used to cast type for printed material, and represents the beginning of mass communications.

Women in Communications, Inc., founded in 1909 as Theta Sigma Phi, a college honorary society for women in journalism, is a national professional organization of more than 9000 members in all fields of communication. The New York Chapter, with more than 800 members, is the largest of the more than 165 chapters.

A luncheon honoring the award winners will be held on Monday, April 12th, at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel.
