Winners in Triton
During the month of May, Triton College sponsored its 41st annual Triton College Visual Communications Contest. The event is held to honor high school students who create digital communication artwork.
Students from 14 area high schools entered more than 400 pieces of artwork in the following 10 categories: Press Work, Screen Printing, Page Layout, Photo Shop, Illustrator, Web Design/Animation, Video, Digital Photography Edited and Digital Photography Unedited. Each category is divided into levels of competition based on the number of semesters a student has had in that media.
The entries are judged by industry specialists to determine the awards. All students receive certificates of participation and the top three at each level in each category receive awards. The projects are judged based on difficulty, creativity, neatness and clarity of information given by the student on their summary of steps taken to complete the project.
At the awards ceremony held on Monday, May 21, Leyden students captured numerous awards, including the Best Overall Award. This top award was presented to Magdalena Trusiewicz for her photo titled, “Whispering Wisdom.” In this piece, she copied and pasted parts of a photo of smoke to build an image of a dove in her photograph.
