Renault looks to students for car design competition
Renault has launched a student graphics competition to design a paint job for its new two seater Twizy and offered to pay the winner’s tuition fees for a year.
Open to college and university students around the UK, entrants can download templates to submit designs of three views of the car.
The zero-emission Twizy will launch in the UK ‘in coming months’ Renault says and comes with three trim levels.
For those wishing to hedge their bets, there is ‘no limit to the amount of times you can enter,’ according to the entry site, which also states, ‘There are no restrictions on the university you study at.’
The car will visit University College London on 13 February, Birmingham City University on 14 February, Manchester Metropolitan University on 16 February and the University of Glasgow on 17 February.
Entrants can visit www.designatwizy.co.uk to download a template and must submit designs by 20 February. One runner up will receive a weekend for two in Paris, and the third prize is a £250 voucher for French Connection.
A Renault-appointed judging panel will select a shortlist of ten, put to a public Facebook vote, before winners are announced on 16 April 2012.
