ACAD Students have continued their tradition of taking home top prizes at the 2011 Applied Arts Student awards with a record 18 Visual Communication Design major students winning awards for their extraordinary work. Congratulations to all of our students who have been recognized as award winners.
The students' work will appear in the November/December 2011 issue of Applied Arts. This special Awards issue is often used by potential employers to scout out new talent. Winners are also featured on the Applied Arts website in a Students Awards Gallery, which attracts more than 400,000 unique visitors annually. Our students, along with the other winners, will be recognized at a special Award Winners' Exhibit to be held this October 27th and 28th in Toronto. The 18 awards won by the ACAD students is more than those won by students at any other design school or college.
As a spokesperson for the magazine shared, “Our esteemed judges came from across North America to grade our stunning entries, which came from as far as Santiago, Chile; Berlin, Germany; and Moscow, Russia. This year, our judges had so many great things to say about the student entries, praising the originality and innovation of the works, as well as the professional quality of many of the pieces. The student winners chosen by our judges are definitely up-and-comers worth keeping an eye out for!” (Applied Arts)
