GDUSA’s Student Design Awards Competition

A dedicated contest for students may be new for us, but  GDUSA has been organizing prestigious and welcoming design competitions for 54 years. In those five decades, the goal of these annual competitions — which now include Graphic Design, Package Design, Inhouse Design, Web Design and Health+Wellness Design — is to recognize effective graphic design, call attention to talented designers, and honor the value that graphic design brings to commerce and culture. In 2017, with students and educators having more influence than ever on the changing shape of design, media and culture, we believe the time is right for a GDUSA Student Design Awards that celebrates the promise of student designers and the power of design education.

All winners will receive an Award of Excellence Certificate suitable for framing, will have their winning piece automatically displayed on our popular website for a year, will have their name and school and (if you wish) instructor’s name published in our print and digital magazines, and will receive a free two-year subscription to GDUSA magazine and enewsletters.

Ad Wars

AAF is hosting AD WARS

Thursday, April 13, 2017
DJs Dugout | Downtown
6 PM
$150 per team (team should have 6 to 10 team members)

Can you handle the trivia? AdWars promises to be a fun and fact filled event. This team competition tests your knowledge of advertising practices, terminology and trivia. I’ts anything but trivial (just ask someone from the 2016 AAF Omaha AdWars championship team from Bailey Lauerman). It’s a brutal display of seemingly useless terms and acronyms. It’s a grueling and treacherous evening of famous jingles and tag lines. Most of all it’s always fun!
