Huge thanks to everyone who entered our competition for the official Abertay Christmas card – the quality was exceptional, and in the end both a winner and a runner-up were picked.
The winner was Nick Hamilton, Pathways Project Manager, for his watercolour entry ‘The Snowball Fight’.
The runner-up was BSc Computer Games Technology student Timea Tabori for her entry ‘Hard Being a Reindeer’.
You can see all the entries on the Abertay Facebook page.
Abertay Graphic Designer Imogen Scott tells us more…
“We had left it up to the artist if they wanted to choose one of the five suggested themes, or start from entirely their own idea – the only requirements were that the design should reflect Abertay or the city of Dundee, and of course be Christmassy!
“The Acting Principal met with the winners and congratulated them on their achievement. Their artwork is sent on behalf of the university to offer festive greetings and well wishes to our most treasured colleagues and friends across Scotland and the rest of the globe.
“The cards were distributed among the schools and other departments of the university, and a limited supply have been available to buy from the Student Centre Shop. There are a few left, so if you would like an Abertay souvenir to take back home for the holiday, there’s still time to get some!
“We usually put ‘Merry Christmas’ in six different languages inside the Abertay card, but I thought we should try and pack in a few more this year. So that’s over 20 languages represented now... It was hard to know when to stop!”
A very merry Christmas and holiday season to all our students, graduates, staff, family and friends.
