The contest which would run from the 21st November to the 10th of December is aimed at showcasing and celebrating the originality, inventiveness and creativity of designers; as they are required to create unique and attractive carpet or rug patterns.
Explaining the rationale behind the competition, the General Manager, Lucky Fibres Plc, Mr. Jitesh Pamnani stated that the contest is designed to promote innovativeness, thoughtful thinking and creativity amongst art designers, while they also get rewarded for their passion and hard work.
“We ran the same competition last year, and we were really stunned by the concepts we got from the different entries. This no doubt shows how creative Nigerians are; and as a brand actively involved in creating floor coverings with amazing patterns, we once again want to engage creative individuals out there, showcase their ability to the world, and also reward them.
Jitesh further stated that the scope of the reward has been widened, as winners now have an internship opportunity with the brand, apart from the cash reward attached.
At the end of this competition, the 1st prize winner will receive three months internship opportunity, a beautiful wall-to-wall Nobel carpets worth N150,000, award plaque, and cash prize, the 2nd prize winner walks home with a wall-to-wall Nobel carpets worth N100,000, award plaque and cash prize while the 3rd prize winner will also receive a wall-to-wall Nobel carpets worth N75,000, award plaque and cash prize.
