Israel’s Ben-Gurion University (BGU) of the Negev won three QS-APPLE Creative Awards for the Best International Educational Promotional Designs at the QS-Apple conference in Singapore earlier this month.

Open to the 190 participating institutions from 42 countries at the QS-APPLE conference, the entries were judged by a team from SAE Institute, Australia – the largest creative media technology institute in the world.

BGU received a Silver Award for the Most Creative Corporate Institution Video for its 40th anniversary movie From Vision to Reality; a Silver Award for the brochures of the Ginsburg-Ingerman Overseas Student Program and a Bronze for the coordinating website, both created and produced by American Associates, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.

“Winning one prize was amazing, but three? It created a mild sensation in the hall,” says BGU’s Director of the Department of Publications and Media Relations Faye Bittker, who received the awards on behalf of the University. “It was all the more meaningful as there were many representatives from universities in countries that don’t have diplomatic relations with Israel,” she adds.

The QS-APPLE Awards were created in 2008 to recognize “the importance of creative and compelling designs in effective communication and brand building.”
