The ICCO University PR World Cup is a prestigious competition challenging students worldwide to test their creative acumen and PR knowledge. Working in pairs, participants engage in a head-to-head contest, formulating and pitching innovative PR campaign ideas under the ICCO & UNDP Global Creative Challenge 2023.
Saad and Soha undertook the task of devising a PR campaign that demonstrated a profound understanding of the brief set by the global campaigns team at the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). Their challenge involved meeting all intricate requirements while displaying a comprehensive grasp of the subject matter.
These campaigns are slated for submission to a panel of esteemed international judges, comprising academics and PR professionals. The judging, based on a comprehensive scoring system, will culminate in the selection of a winning campaign by the third week of November.
The commendable representation by Saad Ahmed Bhatti and Soha Baig at this global platform not only reflects their talent and dedication but also underscores BNU's commitment to fostering excellence and preparing students to excel on an international stage.
