Twenty four students took home Gold and Silver Student ADDY awards for their individual and team projects. This year’s award winners are all UAB clients, including UAB Admissions, UAB Honors College, The Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts, and TRIO Academic Services, says Director of Digital Media and Learning Rosie O’Beirne. The success of the students—many of whom are majoring in the arts, including music, art and film—is a testament to the importance of a team approach because that is needed to create quality work, O’Beirne says.

The Department of Art and Art History has a fantastic group of young artists and designers, who consistently demonstrate creativity, resourcefulness and hard work, says Doug Barrett, Associate Professor.

“By participating in the local ADDYs, our students have their work seen by design professionals and are able to gain a sense of how much their work is valued by the design community. Year after year, UAB takes home the Best of Show for Student ADDYs, a recognition indicative of our students’ hard work and of the quality of our curriculum,” he adds.
