The Student Advertising Federation (SAF) announced the winners of the 16th Annual Student Ad Show at their awards program on Dec 5. The annual competition is endowed by Advertising Professor Bonnie Drewniany in honor of Distinguished Professor Emeritus Jerry Jewler.

"I was very impressed by the professional quality of the entries. The judges focused on details, such as the choice of fonts, casting and production quality — it was as if they were judging the work of their peers," said Drewniany . "I'm delighted that our students met the challenge. Watch out Madison Avenue!"

Judges for the 2015 competition were ADCO Creative Director Brian Murrell, Cromer's Marketing Director Lauren McAlexander and Chernoff Newman President David Campbell.
