The annual awards program recognizes outstanding student design projects from throughout the province. In addition, a special keynote address by Robert L. Peters will take place.
The GDC/BC Salazar Student Awards were established in 1985 to honour Enrique Salazar, a founding member of the Society, a BC National Representative, Partner in Salazar Graphics and a highly regarded member of the BC design community. Among many other achievements, Enrique Salazar remained committed to design education throughout his career and taught Graphic Design at Capilano College until his death in June 1985. Metropolitan Fine Printers, the Founding Sponsor of this event, has once again joined with the GDC to commemorate Enrique Salazar and celebrate BC’c most talented and promising design students and their inspirational work.
