Online Student Paula Bell Selected by CMYK
Getting into CMYK magazine is one of the greatest achievements for students of advertising,
design, photography and illustration. Academy students have a long tradition of getting published
there regularly. The latest star student to be chosen for CMYK is Paula Bell, a photography major
specializing in advertising and photo illustration. Paula began studying at the Academy in Fall
2003; she is scheduled to complete her undergraduate work in 2007 and plans to continue to study at
the Academy for her MFA. Like any student whose work has been chosen by an elite industry jury,
Paula Bell has worked hard to gain her skills and know-how. And Paula has done it all online.
"I strongly believe that online education is the wave of the future and when I heard that the
Academy was launching its online program it sounded like a great adventure. I think that online
education gives you the freedom to plan your schoolwork around your life rather than your life
around schoolwork," says Paula, who has quickly become one of the top students in the Academy's
photography program. Paula exemplifies the limitless opportunities available for students who
study online, and how the Academy encourages its online students to use the world as their
classroom. The image that CMYK selected from Paula Bell's portfolio, entitled "Splash," was taken
in Italy for her online People Photography course at the Academy.
CMYK is an elite publication known throughout the industry; every professional knows to look
there for the best new talent on the market. Only the very best student work in the nation is
chosen out of the thousands of entries it receives every year. The selection of Paula's work
in CMYK indicates that she is one of the best students in the country, online or on campus.
Paula Bell's long-term goals reflect the drive and enthusiasm that have made her into a top
student. She wishes to become an internationally acclaimed fine art photographer, with a book of
published photographic work and a significant portfolio of stock photographs. The success she has
already achieved as a student indicates that the sky is the limit for this up-and-coming
