Knowledge Oman Launches Talent Competition through Social Media

 
Knowledge Oman, the leading community and knowledge sharing platform in the country, has launched a creative design competition for the community. The competition invites the public to create a design based on the themes of volunteer work and community development while integrating it with social media for public voting. This contributes in discovering new talent and supporting local creativity.
 
 
Jalal Al Hadhrami, Social Media Manager at Knowledge Oman, leading the competition, says, "This contest connects citizens and residents together for a creative challenge while raising awareness on the importance of community participation. It ignites the passion and energy of people’s talented artwork while the submitted designs get displayed through the social media pages of Knowledge Oman. This gives people the opportunity to vote for their favorite, share their feedback, and help designers further develop their ideas.”
 
 
The competition calls upon all creative individuals to submit their artwork as a t-shirt design that reflects the mission of a knowledge society. This approach connects the design to one’s lifestyle and integrates the concept as part of our community. Submissions are welcomed until the end of this month with public voting commencing start of June 2012. Competition guidelines are available online atwww.knowledgeoman.com/en/winas each participant may submit one design that is originally created capturing an empowering concept. Top winners are awarded and promoted in the community for their creative work.
 
 
Rym Aoudia, Chief Operating Officer at Knowledge Oman, adds, “Knowledge Oman holds a number of community competitions to bring forward the country’s talent and to encourage creativity and innovation in the country. Through this initiative, we are keen to launch a series of contests and play a role in the creative industry.”
