February 27, 2018

LSUS Digital Arts Graduates, Students, and Faculty Secure Twelve ADDYs at Local American Advertising Awards Competition!

LSUS Digital Arts students and faculty came out big winners with 12 ADDY Awards at the annual AAFSB American Advertising Awards competition held on Saturday, February 24.  A team of Dallas judges evaluated work submitted by both local professionals and area students, selecting the most talented pieces into Bronze, Silver, and Gold awards.  On average, only two percent of submitted work earns the coveted Gold designation. Some notable LSUS winners were Michael Byrnes (BFA, 2017) who won a Special Judges Award and a Gold Student ADDY for his illustrative work, Amber Bordelon (Digital Arts Senior) whose illustration was selected for the event's People's Choice Award, and Allen Garcie (Digital Arts Faculty) whose design work for the LSUS Office of Admissions also garnered a Gold ADDY.  Winners from the local ADDY awards will be submitted into the regional competition taking place in March.
