Results of HKAGE Logo Competition announced (with photos)

    The Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education (HKAGE) today (December 1) announced the results of its Logo and Letterhead Design Competition. The design of the winner of the Open Section will be adopted as the academy's official emblem.

     The competition was organised by the Education Bureau (EDB) to commemorate the establishment of the HKAGE and provide a platform for students and professionals to display their talents in art and design. It attracted over 200 entries.

     The adjudication panel was composed of experts from the field of design, including Mr Iceman Leung, Design Promotion Manager of the Hong Kong Design Centre, Professor Timothy Jachna, Associate Director of the School of Design of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, and Mr Lam Hiu-tung, Curriculum Officer of the EDB's Arts Education Section.

     A champion, first runner-up, second runner-up and 10 winners of merit prizes were selected from each of the Open and Secondary Sections. The adjudicators commented that the entries were generally of high quality and the winning designs were vivid and fascinating.

     "In my design, there is a kid surrounded by the letter 'A' and a ring which symbolises the academy and its full support for gifted children," said Ms Ng Siu-yin, the winner in the Open Section.

     The winner in the Secondary Section was Miss Wong Hiu-Fung, a Secondary Four student from St Rose of Lima's College whose design brought out vividly the mission of the academy. "My logo design consists of a face and the image of a planet in the universe in bold outline. The universe in the person's brain symbolises the talent and unlimited potential of humans. The arrow at the bottom represents the academy's support for students with hopes and dreams," she said.

     A prize-giving ceremony was held at the Lecture Hall of the Hong Kong Science Museum today, with two thematic talks by Mr Irving Koo, chairman of the board of directors of the academy, and Professor Timothy Jachna. They shared with teachers and students their views on design, creativity and gifted education.
