Results of Poster and Quiz Competition, World Optometry Day 2022

Event Date - Wednesday, 23 March 2022


 For the first time, the Department of Optometry organised an E-poster competition with the theme ‘Amblyopia Awareness’ as a part of observation of World Optometry Day 2022 for Optometry College students of North East India. Students of RIPANS were not included in this competition as internal team competitions were organised for them.


To our pleasant surprise, there was an overwhelming response and inspite of the short time, 15 number of entries were received. All entries were really appreciated but, in every competition, there have to be winners. After going through all the entries, the posters were judged based on many different criteria like overall presentation, visual appeal, content, impact of the poster in terms of conveying the message etc.


The following E-posters were unanimously voted as the winners:


First Prize: Rs 5000/- cash award and certificates

Abhishek Kashyap, Momi Gogoi, Dimpi Chetia, B. Optometry 3rd Year, Ridley College of Optometry, Jorhat, Assam
