A Top Prize: Academy of Art Scholarship

The Academy of Art University, based in San Francisco and a pioneer of interactive online instruction, is offering a Pre-College Summer Program scholarship as one of this year’s top awards.  This consists of 4 Online Pre-College Art Classes to be selected by the recipient from the Academy’s Summer 2015 Online Class offerings.  The scholarship includes processing and course-related fees, for a total value of over $525.  Class details can be explored here.  Additional prizes are being finalized, and will be updated in the Prize highlights information.

Media Design Firms Step Up

Many of San Diego’s premier design and advertising firms have agreed to loan their top creative professionals to review student work in this year’s DiMA showcase.  Student work will be reviewed by industry leaders from L7 Creative, MiresBall Brand Design, Pierce, A7D Creative Group, and Digital Nexus.  Design firms can employ any form of digital art, though we expect our design firm pros will focus on Graphic Design, Website, and Photography entries.   Check out the Sponsors link for more about these firms, and the Judges page for background on the judges themselves.

Hello to MEGA Conference Attendees

Thanks to all the folks who stopped by our table today, at the San Diego County Arts Empower MEGA Conference.  Yes, you have located our under-construction website.  We will be posting much more about the six different competitive categories, including the judges and specialized opportunities and prizes.  There will be a calendar of entry deadlines, which can have a significant impact on pricing.  Most of the event information is expected to be in place by Thanksgiving, though major additions may continue right up until the final deadline.  We appreciate your patience!


By the way, the winner of the raffle for the tiny Flash drives was Anna from Coronado School of the Arts.  She knows.  These will be reaching her soon.
