Soon we will host the eleventh annual Quack Awards in conjunction with our fifth annual Pixl Premiere. It will be a time to honor the work completed by you! Being nominated for a Quack Award is a big accomplishment! You will definitely want to showcase in your portfolio that you won a Quack Award. It is an achievement of a lifetime
Throughout your course work, you will spot Purple Duck. If you spot him, you will know that the project is eligible for a Quack Award.
A minimum of three students must complete the project in order for the work to be nominated for a Quack Award.
Members of the Academy of Ducks will nominate the projects that will be honored for the superior work. Nominations will be announced two weeks prior to the Quack Awards.
Board Members of the Academy of Ducks (aka the Program’s Advisory Committee – industry professionals) will review the work of the nominees and select the winner.
Will your work be nominated?
Will you win the coveted Quack Trophy?
You might want to ask off at work now. It is a purple tie affair you will not want to miss!
You will have an opportunity to show work completed during the year to family members during our Pixl Premiere on the same night.
