AWARD School South Australia Awards Melissa Grenci Top of Class
Melissa Grenci has been awarded Top of Class at South Australia’s 2015 AWARD School graduation ceremony, which took place at the Bunka at The Austral in Adelaide last night.
Before a crowd of industry professionals and supporters, AWARD School Head Matt O’Grady of KWP! Advertising congratulated the class of 11 graduates on completing the 12 week intensive course. He said “This year we saw some really strong work in the print, poster, outdoor and integrated categories.
I’d say there were a couple of pieces that if produced would certainly qualify for international awards. Digital and activation proved to be challenging - but this is to be expected given the complexity sometimes required to bring them to life on paper.”
“Most of the students submitted at least one piece that dominated a category, but it was Melissa Grenci who maintained a consistent portfolio of solid ideas across the majority of briefs. The judges were particularly impressed with her depth of thinking and the clarity of her ideas."
Thanking this year’s tutors for their contribution, he added: “AWARD School is extremely important to our industry in identifying and developing the next generation of creative talent – this program wouldn’t happen without the dedication and support of our AWARD School tutors who have given up their time generously.”
This is the third graduation ceremony to take place in Australia this year, with services in Brisbane and Perth to follow on the 6th and 14th August respectively.
AWARD School will also run in Auckland and Tasmania in July.
