TROPHIES designed by a Robert Gordon University student will be handed to the winners of awards recognising success in the energy industry.
Jessica Barr and her colleagues on the 3D Design course at Gray’s School of Art were challenged to come up with ideas on how the Offshore Achievement Award (OAA) gongs should look.
The student came out on top in the competition, held by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Aberdeen section, which is organising the OAAs.
Her design will be reproduced and handed to the winners of the 10 categories when they are announced during a ceremony at Ardoe House on Thursday, March 15.
She said: “I am delighted to have won this competition and extremely proud that my design has been recognised for such a prestigious event.
“I would like to thank SPE for giving us the opportunity to build upon our creative portfolios and put our design skills to use in a real-life project. I’m looking forward to my design coming to life.”
SPE board member Ian Phillips said: “The students brought original and creative ideas to the table. Each one of them should be proud of their efforts and it was a difficult decision for the judging panel.
“We felt that Jessica’s design worked very well visually and we are confident that it will look great not only being presented on the evening, but also on display in the winners’ workplaces.”
