SCAD student works selected for the annual catalog of the New York Society of Illustrators


The New York Society of Illustrators holds an annual Student Scholarship Competition. About 300 works are chosen from more than 8,700 entries submitted by professors of college-level students nationwide. A jury of professional peers, including illustrators and art directors, selects the most outstanding works created throughout the year. Pieces are accepted based on the quality of technique, concept and skill in the medium used.

Scholarship awards are granted to nearly 25 students whose work is deemed the best of the best. Each spring the Student Scholarship Exhibition is held in the galleries of the Museum of American Illustration at the Society of Illustrators, where awards and certificates are given to the students during an opening reception.

The 16 SCAD artworks were framed and shipped to the New York Society of Illustrators gallery to be judged for awards.

Abigail Goh, B.F.A. illustration student, and Justis Rivera, B.F.A. illustration student, were each awarded $500.
