SGIA Requests Submissions for Student Competition
It’s time for printing instructors and students to buckle down and begin selecting their finest work for the Academy of Screen Printing Technology’s 2008 student competitions. SGIA says the Student Screen Printing and Digital Imaging Awards test the imaging capabilities of students in high schools, vocational schools, and colleges.
“Any student who plans to enter the graphic-communications workforce should enter this competition,” says Johnny Shell, SGIA’s vice president of technical services. “Not only can students earn international industry recognition—a potential boost to their resumes—they also have a chance to win monetary prizes.”
The competition has added a new digital subgroup for each of the categories. Entry categories for textile substrates include single color, multi-color: spot color, multi-color: index and simulated process, and four-color process. Students also can submit paper, plastic, glass, metal, and wood entries in single-color, multi-color, and four-color-process categories. The competition also offers a category for original serigraphs on any substrate.
SGIA says the competition is open to students, as individuals or teams, at secondary and post-secondary schools that hold memberships with SGIA, FESPA, or Asia-Pacific Screen Printing and Graphic Imaging Association. All of the entries will be displayed and judged at SGIA ’08, which will take place Oct. 15-18 in Atlanta, GA. For more information, visit www.sgia.org/aspt/studentawd.html.
