A Charles Darwin University design student has won a national logo design contest for an online video production project “Pump Video”.

Emma Wilkins is completing a Cert IV in Graphic Design at CDU’s School of Creative Arts and Humanities.

Ms Wilkins' entry was shortlisted from more than 40 entries and her logo was voted as the most popular by participating students and staff via an on-line poll.

‘I was shocked because there were so many other entries,’ she said.

Students and lecturers from CDU, TAFE Tasmania, TAFE New South Wales/ University of New England and Canberra Institute of Technology were involved with the project.

It connects VET practitioners and students using a virtual conferencing suite of tools called VET Virtual.

In addition, the project explores the usage demands upon the Australian Academic and Research Unit (AARNET) network, working to develop best practices using this very fast internet connection.

Ms Wilkins was awarded $400 in cash prizes and will donate $300 towards an end-of-year exhibition of all the design students’ work at CDU.

CDU design student Ronnawee Gunthol, whose selection was also shortlisted, also   performed well in the on-line poll.
