Ad/PR Majors Sweep NYC Police Foundation Competition

Kyle Witmer and Marta Froncvillar won first place for their "Change the Future" print campaign, part of a Spring '10 New York City Police Foundation advertising contest. They split a $2,000 first place prize in recognition of their outstanding work.

The campaign was selected among entries submitted by students from Pratt Institute, Parsons The New School for Design, and The City College of New York. The competition was stiff!

Under the direction of Prof. Nancy Tag, MCA Ad/PR majors snared second and third place honors as well, in partnership with students from CCNY's Electronic Design & Multimedia major. All will be honored this fall at a Police Foundation gala!
