Artists thrive in new environment

Students rack up scholarships and bring home ADDY awards

Lynn University’s October 2017 acquisition of the Digital Media Arts College was a big change for many students, but it did not deter them on their pursuit of creating award-winning art.

In March, Eugene M. and Christine E. Lynn College of Communication and Design students won 27 ADDY® awards during the American Advertising Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale and the Palm Beaches Student American Advertising Awards competition.

The awards are part of the U.S. advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition. Awards recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in advertising. Marina Antonowicz ’18 received Judge’s Choice, senior Ashley Sullo earned Best of Show, and Barry Harris ’18 and senior Roberto Calix joined both students for Gold ADDYs. Antonowicz, Harris and Sullo joined 10 peers to bring home Silver ADDYs.

Keeping the dream alive

To further support the development of talent in the newly integrated college, and in honor of a long-standing tradition, Lynn announced in February that it would continue in 2018 the annual drawing competition—a student favorite. Applicants submitted electronic copies of four or five life drawings, and a short-list of students was invited to a participate in a final round in April.

Freshman Jingxiao (Allison) Yu earned the full-tuition scholarship, which she is applying to computer animation. Freshman Vanessa Creazzo earned $20,000 for computer animation, and freshmen Mary Bonanno and Cristian Salgado each earned $15,000, which they will apply to graphic design and computer animation.
