The American Advertising Awards is the advertising industry’s largest competition and is judged by industry professionals. The winners of the Gold ADDYs will have their work submitted to the American Advertising District 7 Awards to be held in a few weeks.

 “It was humbling to hear that some attendees believed that our students’ work rivaled the pieces entered by the agencies,” said Nicholas McMillan, assistant professor of graphic design at CSU. “This recognition has announced to the state of Alabama that Columbus State is the place to study graphic design.”
