MSU art students win AdFed awards
Minot State University art students took home seven awards in categories ranging from photography to illustration at the North Dakota Advertising Federation Student Competition Feb. 24-25 in Fargo. This year’s professional judges awarded three gold ADDY awards and four silver ADDY awards to the students.
"The statewide chapter provides opportunity for students to compete with all students in our state and students from Moorhead State and Moorhead State Technical College," said Bill Harbort, professor of graphic arts. "All of the gold ADDYs will move on to student regionals competing against other student work from Wisconsin, South Dakota, Minnesota and North Dakota."
MSU students who received gold ADDYs included Nick Bremer, Minot, in digital photograph for "Shh, They’re Watching," Max Patzner, Minot, in television for "The Man with 2 First Names" and James Skinner, Hazen, in illustration for "Reality Dysfunction." Josh Collins, Minot, was awarded two silver ADDYs in digital photography for "Strawberry Lake" and "NDSF." The other silver ADDY recipients were Aaron Jaeger, Washburn, in direct marketing for "IT Christmas Card" and Briana Schwan, Burlington, in digital photography for "Snowflake."
