With more winning students than any other college, SVA is making an impressive showing at the 2010 Society of Illustrators Student Scholarship Competition. For over 25 years, the Society has recognized the best work from student illustrators. While over 6200 works were submitted, only 240–including 30 from SVA–were accepted to be part of an exhibition at the Society of Illustrators, 128 East 63rd Street, which will run May 5 – 29. For the final phase of the competition, monetary scholarships will be awarded to 30 of the students in the exhibition on March 8. View images from the SVA students on the competition Web site.
