Each year, the Society of Illustrators celebrates the year’s best illustrations and animations created by college students. A jury of professionals from the field—art directors, illustrators, and other professionals—choose works for an exhibition at the Museum of Illustrators in New York. This year, 14 ݮƵ College of Art and Design Illustration students were selected for the exhibition, and one student was awarded a scholarship. 

The exhibition will be on view at the museum from May 8-June 8, 2024, with a reception and awards ceremony on May 10. The show will also be accompanied by a catalog.
