Poster design competition winner earns full scholarship to art school
on Friday,July 09,2010 22:07
For the past few years, The Art Institutes and Americans for the Arts have held a poster design competition. The contest allows high school students to compete for scholarships by creating posters that represent a theme that is predetermined by the hosting organizations. The competition was launched as an effort to encourage, recognize and reward young artists who are interested in graphic design.
This year's winner, Simona Giordano, designed a poster that integrated the theme: life is better with art in it. Her piece visually expressed how the world seems more vibrant because of art, and how nature is an artist's greatest inspiration.
As grand prize winner, Giordano will receive a full scholarship to study at The Art Institute of California and attend a Congressional reception on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC honoring the work of the top three designers.
The second-place winner will be awarded with a half-tuition scholarship, and the runner-up will receive a quarter-tuition discount.
"Americans for the Arts congratulates these talented high school students. We hope that this scholarship jumpstarts many years of success for these budding artists," said Robert L. Lynch, president and CEO of Americans for the Arts.
This and similar competitions can provide great opportunities for young artists to showcase their talent.
