Lingnan Arts Biennale Motion Logo Design Competition



1. Introduction

Lingnan Arts Festival has been launched since 2011. It brings various art forms from Hong Kong as well as other parts of the world to the Lingnan campus. Students, alumni, staff members and any member in the society are able to participate and enrich their cultural well-being through enjoying and taking part in a variety of art and cultural activities, including drama, creative writing workshops, dance performances, fine arts seminars, film shows, and music programmes, among many others.


On its 10th anniversary, the festival will be transformed from an annual event to a biennial cultural event, and it will be renamed to Lingnan Arts Biennale. Some major performances will take place in some well-known art and cultural venues in town. Audience will be immersed in the cultural venues, and their cultural ambience, when they are enjoying the performances. This will enhance the overall cultural experience of participants.


To mark this important transformation, the faculty sincerely invites all local secondary school students, and sub-degree and university students to unleash their creativity to design a unique logo for “Lingnan Arts Biannale”.


There will be a winner, a 1st-runner up, and two to three winners for 2nd-runner up. Awardees will receive cash prize of HK$10,000, HK$5,000 and HK$1,000 respectively and a certificate. The winning entry could be adopted as the official logo of Lingnan Arts Biennale.
