After winning two gold and 15 silver medals in the local American Advertising Awards, 17 Fresno State students moved on to the regional level where the accolades continued. Graphic Design students Michael Vang and Christopher Slaughter earned silver medals in the regional competition. 

“The students have received an invaluable experience through this American Advertising Awards competition as a creative process for their entry into the challenging world of the Advertising Industry,” said Rebecca Barnes, graphic design lecturer.

The regional awards are the second-tier of the American Advertising Federation’s three-tier American Advertising Awards. Fresno State graphic design students competed against other regional ad clubs in District 14 which represent the Fresno, Reno, Sacramento, San Francisco, and Silicon Valley areas.

“We are very proud of all of our Fresno State Graphic Design student winners. It is a testament of their hard work, talent and dedication by winning these very prestigious American Advertising Awards,” said Rebecca Barnes.
