Mohawk Advertising students win big in international competition

Mohawk College’s Advertising program will have seven winners in Applied Arts Magazine’s upcoming Student Awards Annual.

The seven winning entries ties the program's previous best effort from 2011. Also, for the first time, one of Mohawk’s students, Gage Varga was part of four winning entries.

"This is an impressive feat, given that most students would love to just have one winning entry." said Creative Advertising Professor Jef Petrossi.

Applied Arts is a creative magazine which focuses on advertising and design. Their student annual is made of entries from around the world. Which means Mohawk Students had to go up against powerhouse private schools like the Miami Ad School.

One of the winning entries was actually created through the college’s new entity ‘the Agency’. A Youtube commercial for the Bay Area and Science Engineering demonstrates how a various form of sciences work in a clever way.

Applied Arts Winners:


  • BASEF – Noel Torres, Gage Varga, Bekah Herod

  • Barbershop – Gage Varga, Stephen Sandian

  • ADT Flood – Gage Varga, Ruth Cachero

  • Pencils of Promise Coin – Noel Torres, Gage Varga
