Society of Illustrators 2011 Student Scholarship Competition

2011 is the first year that illustration students from ACAD have competed in the Society of Illustrators Student Scholarship Competition. Every year since 1981 the Society has held the Student Scholarship Competition. Over a hundred works are chosen from more than 5,000 entries submitted by professors of college-level students nationwide. In a competition which can kick start a career, students bring their most sophisticated, well-crafted and original work to be tested. A jury of professional peers, including illustrators and art directors, selects the most outstanding works created throughout the year. Pieces are accepted based on the quality of technique, concept and skill of medium used.

Three students were selected,

Character Design major Julianna Michek

Illustration major Jacqui Lee

And Illustration major Lauren Tamaki
