Winners of the Graduate School 25th Anniversary Logo Design Competition

2023/24 marks the 25th Anniversary of the Graduate School. To commemorate this important milestone, a logo design competition was organised to celebrate the Graduate School’s 25 years of establishment and dedication to world-class research postgraduate education.

The competition had an overwhelming response.  70 original and creative designs from students, staff and alumni were received. After careful evaluation and consideration, three winners were selected by a panel of judges. The winning design will be used on the website of Graduate and as an official logo for the anniversary celebration. 

The Graduate School sincerely thanks all participants for their support and enthusiastic involvement in this momentous event, and extends our heartfelt congratulations to the following winners:

Gold Prize

Mr. Cheung Ka Chun

This design was inspired by the shape of HKU Graduate house. On top of the building is a graduate hat to make the design funnier and more stable.

Silver prize

Silver Prize

Ms. Yin Zihan
Student, Faculty of Law

The design integrates the school's architectural outline with the number "25" in an abstract form. It embodies the HKU Graduate School’s legacy and showcases its innovative spirit as well as its community tie and giving back to society.

Bronze prize

Bronze Prize

Miss Lo Lianne Hei-Yin
