SGIA, together with the Academy of Screen Printing Technology (ASPT), is now accepting applications for the 2012 Tom Frecska Student Printing Competition, through July 31. Dedicated to the late editor of ScreenPrinting Magazine, and one of the strongest supporters of the screen printing industry, the Frecska Award recognizes superior imaging work from students at the secondary and post-secondary levels.
This year’s competition includes an expanded list of entry categories that offer additional variety to entrants. Students are encouraged to submit multiple entries, in any of the 24 categories.
First place winners within each category will receive an Award of Excellence, and two exceptional entries — one from each level — will be chosen from those winners, to receive a Best of Show Award. Best of Show winners receive a special ASPT Student Achievement Award and a cash prize of $500 to use toward their graphic arts education. Winning submissions will be displayed to industry leaders from around the world, at the 2012 SGIA Expo (Las Vegas, October 18–20).
To be eligible, schools must hold an active membership with SGIA, and all entries must be produced during the 2011–2012 school year. Visit SGIA.org, Keyword:StudentComp for more information, or download the entry form.
