The Board of Management of CANQATE extends congratulations to Mr Dorron Weir, a student of the Portmore Community College in Jamaica on becoming the winner of the CANQATE Art Competition for the year 2016 and a prize of US$500.00.

 The Competition, launched in 2014, is open to staff and students from across the Caribbean who are full, associate or individual members of CANQATE. Members are invited to submit artwork depicting the theme for the Annual Conference to be held the following year.

Mr Weir  in his response said: “I was ecstatic when I heard the news that I had won the competition. It was my lecturer that had encouraged me to enter based on my previous work. I would encourage budding designers to keep at it and don’t stop as every day is a new experience, and there is always an opportunity to learn new things as you go along.”

Mr Weir’s winning design will serve as the symbol for the CANQATE 2017 Annual Conference to be held in Suriname.  It will be used on all promotional and conference materials.
