Sapienza Store

My Merchandising Competition – 2nd Edition

Invent a Sapienza product or range of merchandising and win! Participation is reserved for Sapienza students and staff. Awards in Sapienza Store coupons will be presented to the candidates providing the three best ideas. Download the call and complete the on-line form to participate.

The merchandising project was conceived thanks to the contributions and ideas of Sapienza students. Now that the project is well-established with an on-campus shop and a vast catalogue, we have decided to renew the original spirit of the initiative, which is not just a commercial pursuit, but a project to consolidate and strengthen the Sapienza community identity. This is the objective of the My Merchandising Competition.

The selection of project ideas will allow us to expand the current catalogue of available Sapienza products and promote the university brand. All projects must address final product quality and production feasibility at a limited cost to promote our university brand. 

The first three placed projects will be awarded:

  • First Place – a coupon for 500 euro for a single purchase of articles sold by the Sapienza Store
  • Second Place – a coupon for 350 euro for a single purchase of articles sold by the Sapienza Store 
  • Third Place – a coupon for 150 euro for a single purchase of articles sold by the Sapienza Store

Winners, who will see their ideas produced and inserted in the university merchandising catalogue, will receive full credit for their ideas (the products will be labelled as “conceived by: name/last name”).

Competition deadline: February 28, 2019.

To participate:

Project proposals must include a careful description of the object, the materials necessaary for its production, production or acquisition process and fishing graphics.
