“On behalf of our Tulane SoPA faculty and staff, I want to congratulate our students on their award-winning work,” said Amanda Garcia, PhD, director of SoPA’s Digital Design Program. “It’s not only an honor to teach these talented students, but an honor to share their work with experts in our industry both on a local and regional level. Sweeping the 2021 ADDY’s once again is such a rewarding accomplishment and showcases our program’s strength on many levels, particularly during an unprecedented year in which our students had to adapt to various environments.”

It feels incredible to have confidence in the caliber of my work and apply that knowledge in a competitive program like the ADDYs,” said AJ Durand, who won a Silver ADDY Award for his work.
