Editathon: Exploring IT and Design Through Competition

Words by: Isabella Molo

Did you know that Information Technology plays a big role in the field of design? While imagination and creativity are important factors, knowing how to utilize the technological tools to create designs is just as important in order to come up with aesthetically pleasing output. ITEC’s Editathon to be held this coming Wednesday, September 28, from 11:30-5:00 pm in CAS 303B aims to showcase the creative competency of students. Headed by Karla P. Oriero, this competition will be the first of its kind to be held at the university. The competition is not limited to a specific course; any student of the university is free to participate.

In a span of three hours, participants will be challenged to design and conceptualize their piece, which should be in line with the theme, using any digital platform or software. The winner will receive a cash prize of PHP 1,000 which may also possibly be used as marketing material for this university’s Golden Anniversary. The second and third place winners will receive PHP 500 and PHP 300 respectively. Be sure not to miss this opportunity to showcase your creative side and experience the dynamic between IT and design by taking part in this competition!
