The exhibit features the works of more than two hundred of today’s top college level illustration students. A jury of professional peers, including illustrators and art directors, have chosen the most outstanding works created throughout the year. Pieces are accepted based on the quality of technique, concept and skill of medium used.
The Society, as well as other generous private and corporate donors, grant scholarships to the top students featured in the competition. The exhibit runs through June 3, 2017 and the students’ work will be published in a full-colour catalogue.
