The Award Program 2000 consists of a series of 3-month online juried exhibitions, displaying student art work that has been selected by a jury of distinguished faculty as among the finest examples of art being produced by students at their campus. The success of the joint venture between SpecialtyArts.Com and RITs School of Photographic Arts and Sciences is largely due to the tremendous support and leadership of Professor Andrew Davidhazy, who has been a significant creative force throughout every phase of program development. The first exhibition of The Awards Program 2000 features the work of three exceptional photography students: Chris Donovan, Hyosub Shin, and Anne Ullman-Stoecker.
