Students offered chance to win cash for best Olympic Games poster designs.
Keeping with the spirit of the Olympic Games, there will be 3 prize levels on offer to students, gold: £200, silver: £125 and bronze: £75. Students are required to design an A3 sized poster which depicts their take on the Olympic Games. Entrants can take their inspiration from historical, cultural, events or communities past or present and offers students an exciting opportunity to celebrate such a vibrant global sporting event.
The judging panel consisting of thinkTASC’s Harry Porter, Provost Alastair Adair and Jackie Barker, Director of the Millennium Courts Art Centre will shortlist 10 – 15 designs which will be printed, mounted and displayed and the 3 final winning designs will then be selected.
thinkTASC’s Harry Porter says “this is a great way for local Northern Ireland students to be creative and express their take on the games through art”. Harry is looking forward to reviewing and discussing the entries with the other members of the judging panel. Further information about the entries and winners will be made available on the website following the closing date of the competition in May.
