KCC Student Journal ANTHEON wins an American Graphic Design Award

Kingsborough Community College’s student journal of arts, Antheon was named a 2023 American Graphic Design Awards winner in the "Student Work" category by Graphic Design USA (GDUSA). KCC is the only community college to have been recognized.

Open to every­one in its community, including design firms and studios, ad and creative agencies, in-house departments, freelancers, students and more, the award is currently celebrating its 60th anniversary.

Produced annually, “Antheon” features visual art, fiction and poetry by Kingsborough students. Each fall, a new team of graphic design majors is selected to serve as editors and designers under the watchful eye of KCC’s graphic design and illustration program director, Prof. Kristin Derminova.

The 2023 journal was designed by Alina Otchenashko and Briana Guinn, with assistance from Hudaa Mahmood, Tabitha Jenkins, Dianna Cuahutencos and Taylor Freeman. Professors Gregory Bruno and Anthony Iantosca of the English department and Julie Turley of the library served as literary advisors.

 “Antheon” is published at the end of each spring semester. While the deadline for the 2024 edition has passed, submissions are accepted year-round from enrolled students of any major. For information on how to submit their work, KCC students can visit
