Although I arrived in Knoxville late last night and missed the majority of the awards ceremony, I was able to accept my 2nd place award for the Environmental Design category for Communication Design before they closed the doors for the evening.
I was excited to be honored with this award and was happy to find out that two other folks from MCA also won awards for work they submitted. Fellow instructor, John Lee (Illustration prof) and illustration student, Clare Caldwell.
The competition showcased communication design from all over the state. Categories for submission included print, brand / identity systems, package design, editorial, photography, illustration, motion broadcast, environmental, and interactive.
According to the website,
“AIGA Knoxville is proud to be hosting the 5th TENN Show, the prestigious statewide graphic design competition recognizing Tennessee’s most talented communication designers. Winners of the biennial TENN Show competition represent the best work across all disciplines of communication design from designers across the state, as chosen by a distinguished jury of regional design leaders. Professional and student designers from around the state are invited to submit their best work for consideration.”
