The competition, which is part of the bank’s Corporate Social Responsibility efforts in the education sector, according to a statement, seeks to transform the perception that artistically inclined undergraduates have of themselves in relation to corporate organisations, their acceptability and the difference they can make given the opportunity and a suitable platform.
The competition tagged ‘Sketchamania,’ is a break from the norm and an statement by Sterling Bank that it seeks to identify new opportunities to make a difference in a distinct manner by impacting society through deliberate interventions aimed at encouraging and celebrating unique talents, which abound in Nigeria.
According to the Group Head, Strategy and Communications, Sterling Bank, Mr. Shina Atilola, participants are to upload their sketched designs on the bank’s Facebook page.
The creators of the top 10 designs will be given some amount of money to produce their designs. The designs so brought to life will be showcased at the final event billed for April 20, 2013 at the University of Lagos.
Sketch-a-mania is strictly for undergraduates. Simply sketch a stylish outfit for Sterling Bank’s guards, drivers and Customer Service Assistants (both male and female), upload it on the app Sketch-a-mania on Sterling Bank’s Facebook Page and get your friends to vote for you.
The winning designs will be picked by judges. You can also Sterling Bank’s Twitter handle for more info @sterling_bankng
