MSC is proud to announce the winner of our “SG50 Design a Container Competition”! Congratulations to Mr. Peter Ng of DHL GLOBAL FORWARDING for his entry themed “Celebrating 50 years of Singapore Sunrise”.
During the week-long voting period, we received a total of 1,422 public votes and 1,924 total page views featuring the Top Ten finalists.
Three main entries, from DHL Global Forwarding, Schenker (Asia Pacific) Pte Ltd and Panalpina Asia Pacific Management Pte Ltd, were the main ones to stand out, accounting for two thirds of the public votes.
The remaining 50% of scores were judged by a panel consisting of top management from MSC Geneva Marketing, ARO Marketing Department, ARO Trade Management and Corporate Accounts Department. To make a fair competition, the judges’ panel was not shown the final number of public votes. Each entry was evaluated by judges on its own merit. Ultimately, scoring from both components were added together to derive the final score.
The winning design will be developed into a sticker to be pasted on a real 20 foot container at the winner’s office premises, followed by a mini award ceremony to present the cash price and a commemorative miniature container. We will follow the 20 footer’s progress for the next 12 months in photos as it travels around the world.
