12 Students to Represent KCAD in Society of Illustrators Scholarship Competition
The jury is in, and 12 students will proudly represent KCAD in the annual Society of Illustrators Student Scholarship Competition. Of the 48 schools represented, only 6 have more artists involved in this nationally renowned event.
Hard work, planning, and a whole lot of talent in KCAD’s Illustration program culminated in a record number of KCAD student entries. According to professor Lisa Ambrose, the program normally sees around 40 students submitting work, with an average of 2-5 actually gaining admission. This year, however, illustration instructors redoubled their motivational efforts and were able to encourage an astonishing 94 students to submit a total of 416 works of art for consideration.
The accepted illustrations will now be framed and shipped to the Society of Illustrators in preparation for a gallery show to be held at the Museum of American Illustration in New York City from May 7 – May 31. The scholarships will be awarded once all the work for the show has arrived.
