AUK First-Year Student Wins 1st Place at COMFEST

AUK proudly announces the great achievement of one of its outstanding graphic design students, Lindsay Gomes, who won the 1st place prize at COMFEST, receiving KD500.

COMFEST-Comic Festival Convention-is a three-day pop culture convention which combines film, television, comics, anime, games, cosplay, and music. The event brings people from all around the world, offering the ultimate fan experience with an international line-up of celebrity and entertainment guests, artists, and cosplayers.

Gomes participated in one of the recently held competitions at COMFEST in Kuwait. He submitted a digital art poster to COMFEST's movie poster design competition-which he had created the project in Assistant Professor Joo Won Lee's digital foundations class (GDES110).

According to Dr. Joo Won, this is the second time one of her students has won an award for a project created in an entry 100 and 200 levels class. Dr. Joo Won expressed her excitement about the award, "I now believe in our students' creative potential even more."

Dr. Joo Won praised her students' strong abilities and attributed much of their success to her class' emphasis on the rich values of Arabian culture. Dr. Joo Won further stressed that family, culture, and values are the core to any achieved success, as they will never go out of trend, "Digital is just a trend. But everyday life is a foundational thing. Be selective. Keep your values."
