CPCC is pleased to announce that for the second consecutive year, a CPCC Graphic Arts and Imaging Technology + Flexography (GAIT) student has won a PICA (Printing Industry of the Carolinas) Award. Since its inception in 1966, the PICA Award has served as the premier symbol of excellence for the graphics industry in the Carolinas.
CPCC’s Rebecca Booth was recognized with the “Best of Show” PICA Award for her “Beatles” poster, a piece she created in the College’s Offset Press Operations class, during the 45th annual PICA Awards ceremony, held on March 3 at the Embassy Suites in Concord, N.C. For her efforts, Rebecca and CPCC were both awarded $500.
“I am extremely proud of Rebecca and her work,” said Stephen Gerhardt, Harper National Flexographic Center coordinator. “Her award demonstrates the quality of the graphic arts program at CPCC and the excellence our faculty strives to achieve each day as it educates tomorrow’s leading professionals in the graphics industry.”
