Alum Molly Mendoza Tapped for $5000 Rockstar Games Award

PNCA alumna Molly Mendoza‘s image “My Line Our Vibe!” has been awarded the $5000 Rockstar Games Award. Mendoza was one of three PNCA students whose work was selected for the 2015 Society of Illustrators Student Scholarship Competition in New York. The others were Alyssa Van Hulle and Cate Andrews. Mendoza also had work selected for the 2014 Society of Illustrators Student Scholarship Competition.

Mendoza completed her studies in the fall of 2014. She was a Lemelson Scholar, recipient of a prestigious scholarship. She has already created work for Adobe, Nautilus, and the NYTimes, and has had her work highlighted by the influential blog The Fox is Black.

This is the second time in three years a PNCA Illustration student has received one of the select awards; Samantha Mash received it in 2012-13.

PNCA Students in Society of Illustrators Student Scholarship Competition

Molly Mendoza,

Works by three PNCA students were selected for the 2015 Society of Illustrators Student Scholarship Competition in New York.

Molly Mendoza’s works “Saturn” and “My Line Our Vibe”  (ink and digital color), Alyssa Van Hulle’s “Sami School” (ink and digital color) and Cate Andrews’ “Cover Redesign for ‘Gathering Blue’” (ink and digital manipulation).

Every year since 1981 the Society has held the Student Scholarship Competition. Approximately three hundred works are chosen from more than 9,000 entries submitted by illustration professors nationwide. A jury of professional peers, including illustrators and art directors, selects the most outstanding works created throughout the year. Pieces are accepted based on the quality of technique, concept, and skill of medium used. From the Society’s endowment, and through generous contributions from private and corporate donors, scholarship awards are granted to about 25 students. In the last 30 years, the Society has awarded over $1,500,000 to deserving students in this unique competition.

Scholarship awards will be announced in the coming weeks, with the opening reception taking place at the Gallery of American Illustration in NYC in May. The show will be on display through the beginning of June.
