The Star's Design-an-Ad competition

The St Mary’s Visual Arts department entered The Star’s Design-an- Ad competition and fared extremely well. The competition is a good introduction to the world of advertising. The girls were required to respond to an advertising brief and convey a message in the medium of their choice. The advertisers chose the best advertisements in each category for their product. A panel of judges chose the finalists. Execution, attention to branding and a good concept were considered.

Thank you to Bianca Paririenyatwa who organised St Mary’s School’s participation in the competition and congratulations to the following girls who made a clean sweep of the Grades 8 and 9 section and had their advertisements published in a special supplement in The Star:


1st – Amy Leishman
2nd – Theaya Palanee
3rd – Erin Pullinger
