A Touch of Singapore for RoboCup 2010
More than 500 entrants vied to create a logo and mascot befitting the "Olympics" of robotics
The search for the best logo and mascot designs for RoboCup 2010 attracted more than 500 entries from Singapore’s primary and secondary schools, junior colleges, Institute of Technical Education, polytechnics and universities.
The top prize in both the logo and mascot categories eventually went to Singapore Polytechnic (SP) students Desmond Ng Longyi (logo) and Zhang Min Hua (mascot). Xin Min Secondary student Paszkiewicz Jan and Nanyang Polytechnic student Liau Jian Wei are also among the top six winners.
Winner of the mascot category Zhang Min Hua says: “I created a robot lion that looks curious and adventurous to show that Singapore is a country full of discoveries.”
Says Desmond Ng of his winning logo design: “I used gears to represent robots. And since soccer is a component of RoboCup, the gears actually turn into soccer balls when the logo is used in a black background.”
The competition was jointly organised by Singapore Polytechnic, Economic Development Board, Science Centre Singapore and the Singapore Tourism Board.
The panel of independent judges who selected the winning entries included Benjy Choo, Founder of Kilo Studio; David Tan, Group Creative Director, First Media and Larry Peh, Founder of & Larry.
A prize presentation ceremony was held at the Science Centre today to present prizes and certificates to the winners.
