The Dubai Lynx International Festival of Creativity has announced the introduction of a new student competition and award for 2013 in partnership with Masar Printing & Publishing. The Dubai Lynx Masar Creative Award for Print, which was launched on February 4 as a Print competition, will offer a platform that will propel talented students into the creative spotlight.
The competition invites students across the Middle East and North Africa region to design a Poster that will fit the brief given by a designated charity. The brief is available at www.dubailynx.com from which competitors will have until 14 February to design, create and submit their Poster. All entries will be judged during the Festival by the official Dubai Lynx jury. The winner will then be revealed and presented with their prize, courtesy of Masar Printing & Publishing, during the Dubai Lynx Awards which takes place on the evening of 13 March.
About the competition, Faisal Bin Haidar, General Manager of Masar Printing & Publishing, says, “We are pleased to launch this initiative with our valuable partner Dubai Lynx to help young university students from UAE and across the MENA region to develop and exhibit their creative communication skills.”
Steve Latham, Director of Talent & Training at Dubai Lynx comments, “The Dubai Lynx Masar Creative Award for Print is a really important launch which enhances a key value of the Festival: to foster young talent, providing an opportunity for the next generation to showcase their creative skills.”
