Batelco, UCB launch graphic design contest
Manama, July 8, 2012
Batelco, the leading telecom services provider in Bahrain, recently launched a graphic design competition for students in association with University College of Bahrain (UCB).
The competition Your Masterpiece, Your Design invited students of UCB to devise, create and execute engaging concepts that can be implemented at Batelco’s retail shops.
The competition involved the creation of an artwork that would be appropriate for use, with the students taking on the role of the design agency. The participating students attended presentations and workshops and received feedback on their work before submitting their final presentations to Batelco.
A panel of judges from Batelco Consumer Division Marketing Team selected four finalists based on their skills in a number of areas including artwork, presentation and originality.
The final winner, Hana Yaseen- third year student at UCB, Graphic Design Department, demonstrated creativity with her concept using digital and photographic techniques.
Batelco Public Relations general manager Ahmed Janahi said that providing such an opportunity for the graphic design students allowed them to utilise the skills they have learned through their courses at UCB, in a real life project.
“The experience enriched the students’ knowledge and will undoubtedly help to prepare them for the challenges they will face once they enter the workforce,” Janahi said.
“We extend our thanks to all who participated and presented such great work. Congratulations to the winner and we look forward to see her excel in her career,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
