ADDY Award Winners 2016

Marywood University’s Department of Visual Arts is a place for students to learn and excel in the field of their choice. Professors strive to help their students produce their best work everyday, both in and out of the classroom. In addition, Professors regularly encourage students to participate and engage in award shows and competitions to get their name and work noticed out in the real world.

This year for the Annual ADDY Award Show, held by the American Advertising Federation of NEPA (, there were three Marywood seniors and one Marywood professor that all won awards. This award show is one of the most prestigious in Northeast Pennsylvania, so it is a great honor for the students and for Marywood to have such talented students and professors.

Silver Medal Award

Christine Medley, who is a graphic design professor here at Marywood University, was recognized for being someone who has contributed outstanding work to the advertising field. Because of this recognition she received the Silver Medal Award, lovingly dubbed the Silver Medley Award.
