Virtual Hack COVID-19
Virtual Hack COVID-19 "A Visual Campaign Challenge" is a 36-hour online challenge to unleash your creativity, produce visual contents, and launch awareness/publicity campaigns against the coronavirus disease crisis. This event is organized by Lingnan Entrepreneurship Initiative, the Department of Visual Studies and the Science Unit. The event targets to generate various innovative campaign solutions to relieve the social panic brought by the COVID-19 and ease some related awareness problems, such as the lack of hygiene knowledge, the spread of fake news about the pandemic, the hoarding of groceries or protective items, etc.
In the Virtual Hack, participants (students and alumni) with different talents will form teams to design and create media products (e.g. videos, animations, posters, leaflets, IG/FB stories, Snapchat, TikTok, etc.), and launch the awareness campaigns. Your team will be equipped with media tools through our video editing workshop, as well as receives valuable feedback from experienced judges and mentors, to produce impactful publicity materials and campaigns for the community.
Three winning teams will be awarded cash coupon prizes to further support their campaign projects. Students who complete the whole programme with satisfactory performance will also receive 10 Integrated Learning Programme (ILP) Units for their graduation requirements.
