SI Student Show
Jeremy Enecio, MICA, $5,000 Award in Memory of Arthur Zankel/Illustration Academy Award-7 week program
The judging this year was handled a little differently. Instead of schools entering this competition with slides as they have been for probably over 20 years, schools are now entering their students work using a new digital upload/judging system. This new system couldn’t have been possible without the help of our favorite men behind the curtain, Robert Zimmerman and Joshua Carpenter of BugLogic. Zimm and I have been going back and forth since the beginning of last year try to create a viable, workable and modern system for this competition and possibly the other competitions in the future at the Society….and it friggin’ rocks! Thank you Zimm and Josh!
Take a look at the portal and art: www.soicompetitions.org
Also, as a follow up, the Annual Auction was a huge hit and thank you to all my friends and Drawgerites for submitting work at the last minute. I don’t have any actual numbers in front of me but as I understand it, we broke last year’s numbers! On behalf of the Education Committee, thank you….the students will be grateful!
If you are in the New York area, a student, a professional iller, art director or designer, please come down to the Society Friday night. The art is amazing!
