Six University of Lynchburg students are among the best graphic design students in western Virginia, according to the results of a recent competition with more than 700 student entries.
At an awards ceremony on Feb. 28, the Roanoke Chapter of the American Advertising Federation honored the graphic design work of six LC students with eight ADDY Awards, including one Gold ADDY, the highest prize available, awarded to Katharine Neill ’15. Her entry, a logo for Urban Harvest, will continue to the next level of competition in the American Advertising Awards.
The awards recognize and reward creativity and excellence in the art of advertising, and they symbolize a significant accomplishment for students. “To win an ADDY is the ultimate professional accomplishment for a student,” said Ursula Bryant, LC professor of graphic design. “It provides terrific networking opportunities and great exposure to design agencies and media.
“These awards are nationally recognized, and this exciting achievement will follow these students throughout their careers in the industry.”
