When undergraduate students from 12 college photography programs participated in the first Southwest Virginia Juried Student Photography Competition, Radford University organizers knew turning this into a regular event was worth pursuing. It returns this year and entries are due Jan. 20, 2017.
Amid the holiday lights at Sharkey’s On Top, Radford University graphic design students and alumni mingled together at the first Student Graphic Design Show and Alumni Meet and Greet held Dec. 9, 2016. See the winners.
This summer when Radford University senior graphic design student Paul Gartner found out he won a National Student Silver ADDY in the annual American Advertising Federation’s competition, he was calm and introspective.
Once Dean Steve Helm presented the final award of the 2016 Winesett Book Collecting Awards, as luck would have it, the top three winners have two things in common. They are all graduate students and are majoring in fields within the Radford University College of Visual and Performing Arts.
The annual student graphic design show planning started with a move, a season change, and a twist. Radford University graphic design professors John O’Connor and Ken Smith wanted to find a way to bring together more students, alumni and community for the annual one night only student graphic design show. So, this semester they are shaking things up.
