Graphic Design Students Win Addy Awards
Marywood University undergraduate graphic design students received Addy Awards for their design and illustration work at the Northeast Pennsylvania (NEPA) American Advertising Federation (AAF) Addy Award competition. Additionally, two Marywood University students went on to win silver awards at the district level competition, which encompasses the New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. regions.
"This is an impressive accomplishment—to have two students win at the district level," said Christine Medley, assistant professor of graphic design at Marywood University. Ashley Kujat, junior, was awarded a silver award at each level (local and district); Sara Luciano, senior, was awarded a gold, two silvers, and a judge's choice at local level and silver at district level; and Alyssa Roman, senior, was awarded silver at the local level.
AAF of NEPA is the nation's oldest national advertising trade association. The only association representing all facets of the advertising industry, AAF is headquartered in Washington, D.C., and acts as the "Unifying Voice for Advertising." AAF protects and promotes the well being of advertising through a unique, nationally coordinated grassroots network of advertisers, agencies, media companies, local advertising clubs and college chapters.
