The Connecticut Directors Art Club is proud to present the 2012 Student Conference and Scholarship Competition for students in visual communications, graphic design, new media, illustration, and photography programs. It is a fantastic opportunity for students to hear real-life perspectives on creative careers.
The Conference features five 30 minute presentations from leading design professionals offering advice and inspiration. Topics will include the how the speakers got started in design, how they got their first job and advanced in their careers, skills that are in demand today, what inspires them, and types of work they and their firms create. There will be time after each presentation for Q&A.
Undergraduate students have the opportunity to win scholarship money by submitting a portfolio of 8-10 pieces for judging. Portfolios from accredited design, multi-media, visual communications, photography, and illustration programs in Connecticut are eligible. Students must be in their first, second or third year of study. Students in their fourth year may participate in a one-to-one portfolio review session with members of the CADC. Scholarship winners will be announced at lunch and scholarship checks will be presented at the CADC Annual Award Show. If winners are unable to attend the Award Show, checks will be mailed to the winners. Judges are members of the CADC.
