The winning artist receives GHC 30,000 worth of cash, art materials, office tools and equipment and the chance to have their creative work grace the Limited-Edition package of FanIce.
Speaking on the competition, Frances-Nadhia Aryee expressed gratitude to the Ghanaian consumers who have enjoyed and welcomed the brand into their homes, making it the country’s leading brand since 1960.
“FanIce is arguably the biggest – and most loved – product brand in Ghana. We are embedded in the Ghanaian culture and cemented in childhood memories nationwide, with the “FanIce” name being synonymous with ‘ice cream’.
From memorable moments with family and friends, to iconic “Ghana moments” like our classic ‘So Nice’ advert, we believe that our ice cream complement celebrations. Our core values are as strong and emotional as they are only because they are driven by the Ghanaian community rather than by the company itself.
As a brand, we are dedicated to making great ice cream, but we are also dedicated to helping Ghanaians celebrate every single moment by creating content that reflects our core values of nostalgia, culture, and enjoyment.
Between now and the March 22nd, we are giving all creative artists the creative platform to express their artistic freedom. This, we believe is an impactful way of amplifying the shared values between the brand and the creative community in Ghana,” Frances stated.
Independence Day is a great day of celebration. It’s a day to show our national pride as well as reflect on the importance of freedom. As we celebrate the freedom of the nation, we also want to celebrate creative freedom by engaging creative communities in an impactful way. Our goal is to create memorable moments that highlight those core values of FanIce as a brand while supporting creative and talented Ghanaians who are expressing themselves through their art. It’s really the perfect way to celebrate independence!”
