March 8, 2011Addy winner Wayne Dallas

The University of Central Oklahoma Department of Design dominated the student categories at the 2011 Oklahoma City ADDY Awards, with 33 Central students winning a total of 40 awards.            

Of those awards, 14 were gold, 14 silver, 12 bronze and two special mentions. The university also won the coveted "Braggy" award, given to the university with the most student winners.

In addition to winning gold, silver and bronze student awards, graduating senior Brandon Land of Piedmont won the "Best of Student" award for his poster design, "Paper Jam."             

"The Department of Design is proud of its student winners, and its faculty that is committed to supporting them," said Rukmini Ravikumar, M.F.A., chair of Central's Department of Design.

"These awards are testament to the rigor of the design programs and the highly quality of design education that students receive at Central."              

The ADDY Awards are the advertising industry's largest competition, attracting more than 50,000 entries every year in local competitions throughout the nation. The Student ADDY Awards are a three-tier national competition sponsored by the American Advertising Federation and National Ad 2, and recognizes and rewards creative excellence by students.

The students awarded the 14 gold awards will automatically advance to the district level, the next tier of the competition.  Central will compete in the 2011 American Advertising Federation Tenth District on April 13-16 at the Skirvin Hilton Hotel in Oklahoma City.

"I am very proud of the students and faculty in our Design Department," said John Clinton, Ph.D., dean of Central's College of Fine Arts and Design.

"The remarkable success the students achieved at the ADDY awards is evidence of their high standards, hard work and exceptional talent."

The award-winning work will be exhibited in the Nigh University Center with an opening reception from 4-6 pm, April 14, in the Donna Nigh Gallery, 3rd Floor. Both the opening and the exhibit are open to the public and free of charge. The exhibit will continue through May 9.
