In 2019, Nossi College of Art launched a campaign designed to highlight what makes a Nossi College of Art student unique. As creatives, we enjoy being edgy and standing out because we are dedicated to our individuality and image. In college, many art school students discover their passions, new interests, and non-negotiables as they develop into creative professionals, graduating in four fast years.
In October 2019, the Collegiate Advertising Awards (CAA) requested submissions for their awards program and received entries from across the United States and Canada. The CAA is an elite, national program recognizing higher education organizations for excellence in communications, marketing, advertising, and promotions. The advertising submissions represented small community colleges to larger schools & universities.
Nossi’s campaign included videos, billboards, print ads, digital campaigns, posters, and social media designs. The videos are part of an interview series featuring students and faculty recalling the moment they knew they wanted to be a creative professional. The print and digital portion of the campaign focused on fun photoshopped images of babies with ridiculous cliches about artists.
Submissions were reviewed by a national panel of industry experts, with a possibility of scoring a total of 100 points. Nossi’s entries competed against similarly sized organizations (1,000 students and under) in specific groups and categories. In January 2019, Nossi was notified that we earned the Gold Award and ranked in the top 5% of the nation – scoring between 95 and 99 points.
Awards were issued for colleges that received top marks from judges, placing Nossi College and other winners in the top 16% of the nation for advertising excellence. Judging criteria included creativity, layout and design, functionality, message effectiveness, production quality, and overall appeal.
Representing all areas of communications, media, marketing, advertising, and promotions, the 2019 Collegiate Advertising Awards program contained some of the best advertising projects arguably in the world. The Collegiate Advertising Awards is pleased to recognize the outstanding creative achievements of Nossi College of Art.
