IAC graphic design competition invites entries
Primary and secondary school students are invited to show their creativity by taking part in a graphic design competition of the large-scale summer festival, "International Arts Carnival" (IAC) organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD).
The Competition, as a prelude to the IAC, aims at arousing students' interest in design and fostering their creativity.
Lasting about six weeks from July 12 to August 24, IAC is an arts festival for family members of all ages. It will bring to families all over Hong Kong a delightful and meaningful summer vacation with fabulous and diversified programmes from all over the world. Entertaining and educational performances range from music, dance, drama, puppetry, mime, magic, acrobatics, clowning and film to all sorts of theatrical arts.

The Competition is divided into two sections: primary school section and secondary school section. Submissions may be made on individual or team basis and each participant may submit more than one design work.
