GTUC Level 200 student wins NHARCON Logo Competition

Accra – Mr Emmanuel Asante, a Level 200 student of the Ghana Technology University College (GTUC), Tesano, has won the National HIV and AIDS Research Conference (NHARCON) 2018 Logo Competition.

The Competition was instituted in 2017 by the NHARCON 2018 Planning Committee to brand the Conference and serve as a marketing tool for all communications on it.

Mr Asante had a cheque for GH2000 as a scholarship to attend the Conference and secure Information, Education and Communication materials, while the second winner, Mr Emmanuel Leslie Aggrey, had GH1500 and a packaged material.

Dr Mokowaa Blay Adu-Gyamfi, the Director-General of the Ghana AIDS Commission, said NHARCON 2018, to be held from May 8 to 11 at the Accra International Conference Centre, would be the fourth of such conferences to be organised by the Commission.

She said the Conference provided a platform for researchers and stakeholders to share information and experiences and examine their implications for the improvement of the current National HIV and AIDS Strategic Plan 2016�2020 for the attainment of the 90 90 90 treatment targets.

Dr Adu-Gyamfi said the Logo Competition became important as the Planning Committee recognised the need for a unique logo to brand the Conference, and also serve as a marketing tool for all communications.

She said the Commission received 36 entries from 22 participants after which an Evaluation Panel was constituted to select the best logo.

Six logos were shortlisted by the panel and through a series of evaluation processes, the best and second best were selected.

The final selected logo was subjected to further review by the NHARCON 2018 Joint Planning and Scientific Committee, she added.

Professor Isabella Quakyi, Co-Chair of Scientific Committee, commended the award winners for the conference logo, which would bring them together to have a memorable conference.

Mr Asante, who is also a Creative Director at Plate, a Design Agency, on behalf of his colleague, thanked the Ghana AIDS Commission for the recognition.

He pledged his preparedness to support in the educational efforts of the Commission to achieve its targets.

Mr Asante said being a designer he had always wanted the opportunity to impact his talent to others as his quota for national development.

He urged the youth to be focused in whatever they did and put in their best to aid in the development of the nation.
