Saoirse wins design prize

AN illuminating design by Kilgarvan woman Saoirse Fennessy has claimed second prize in the 2014 BIC PICS Design Competition.

Saoirse, from Cahir East, was up against stiff competition from designers across the country in the contest which asks people to submit a creative image of a BIC lighter. It was run through the BIC Light Life Facebook and Twitter pages over four weeks and attracted hundreds of entries. Saoirse's design 'Glowing Light' emerged as an early favourite among judges. "Saoirse created this colourful entry by standing a white BIC lighter up vertically and using a bright effect filter, she gave the lighter a heavenly glow," judges said.

Saoirse's entry was rewarded with a prize of an instant camera along with some BIC goodies.
