Three AUK Students Win "Acura" Photography Competition

The American University of Kuwait (AUK) co-organized a photography competition for its students in partnership the Al Mulla International Auto Trading Company. The competition, called Acura, required participating students to take photographs of the Acura car- the world's first Japanese luxury car since 1986 - and share the photos on the social networking platform Instagram for a chance to win KD 1500, KD 1000, or KD 500 in prize money.

The competition was open to all AUK students and ran for one month, during which participants were required to take creative photos of the Acura car and posted them on their personal Instagram accounts.

The winners of the competition were selected based on the creativity of the photographs they posted and the number of organic "Likes" they accumulated on Instagram. Thirty students participated in the competition and the winners were announced during a ceremony held at the AUK campus. The event was attended by Mr. Loay Ahmed, Marketing Manager, and Mr. Khalil Aboud, Brand Manager at Al Mulla International, who presented the winners with the prizes. Bassam Saleh, Ali Deeb, and Aliaa Jamal, won the first, second and third prizes respectively.

Dr. Hanan Muzaffar, AUK Dean of Student Affairs, extended congratulations to the winners saying "Bassem, Ali, Aliaa, and everyone else who participated in the photography competition, you make us all proud to belong to AUK. Creativity and dedication are indeed traits that our students excel at, so there was no doubt that the top three winners would be members of our Wolfpack. Great job! Continue to make us shine."

"We at ACURA are always keen to encourage the young generation of Kuwait to get more creative and to excel in all areas, as part of our social responsibilities," said Mr. Imad Malaeb, General Manager of Acura, "This won't be the last event, as we still have so many more events to come in 2016."
