UH artists to design telephone book cover
Hawaiian Telcom is commemorating the 100th anniversary of the university
University of Hawaii-connected artists will design the 2007 phone book cover to mark the 100th anniversary of the university, the UH and Hawaiian Telcom announced in a written news release.
Hawaiian Telcom will choose cover artists for the nine centennial directories in a design competition through the art departments of the main UH campus in each county.
Each directory will also have dedicated pages inside featuring the artist for that directory's cover and providing information on the University of Hawaii's centennial.
The first design will appear will be on the Oahu phone book, which will be distributed in October. Directories for the counties of Hawaii, Kauai and Maui will be distributed in January and February.
Designs will also be selected for the Oahu Yellow Pages directory, Windward, Leeward, East Honolulu and Oahu's new companion directory for a total of nine cover designs.
The contests are open to all University of Hawaii part-time and full-time students, faculty and staff enrolled or employed at University of Hawaii campuses at any time during the spring 2006 semester. The University of Hawaii will present winners with a cash prize of $200, and Hawaiian Telcom will present winners with another $100.
Judging will be based on originality, creativity, design, expression and relationship to "celebrating 100 years of higher education in Hawaii."
"We are honored to feature aspiring local artists on our official directory covers and to celebrate the University of Hawaii's 100th anniversary in an appropriately creative way," said Mike Ruley, chief executive officer of Hawaiian Telcom, in a written news release.
"We are grateful to Hawaiian Telecom for providing us this unique opportunity to commemorate our centennial while showcasing the talent of our university community," said David McClain, interim UH president, in the same release.
