Woori Bank held the prize-giving ceremony for the WOORI WON UXUI Design Contest on September 30, with the top three winners receiving a total of $9,000.
The event at Woori Bank head office was presided over by the leading financial institution's CEO Hong Ju Kim, its top management and the evaluation committee.
The winners were awarded with cash prizes of $5,000, $3,000 and $1,000 respectively for their creative ideas in UX (user experience design) and UI (user interface design).
The competition demonstrates Woori Bank's commitment to developing new mobile banking and digital banking experiences to adapt to consumer trends and the evolving needs of the digital era.
“Before holding this special event, Woori Bank Cambodia invited everyone with brilliant ideas in fintech to participate in building the WOORI WON app with appealing design and useful add-on features to be the most attractive and user-friendly mobile banking app in the Kingdom.
“Woori Bank’s vision is to become 'The first choice of financial services' for Cambodian people with our core value of being the 'Fastest, Most Convenient and Most Innovative Bank in Cambodia',” said Woori Bank Cambodia CEO Hong Ju Kim.
Chhim Vong Ubol spoke on behalf of the winners.
“This was the first contest of its type I have ever seen, one that gave me and other talented candidates the chance to showcase our abilities and our creative ideas in UXUI to create a mobile banking app.
"The competition valued the importance of design work, and as a design professional, I am delighted to have been able to take part and win – and I am thankful to Woori Bank Cambodia for running this contest,” he said.
The WOORI WON UXUI Design Contest – which received huge attention, especially on social media – was open to members of the public for two months between June 1 and July 31.
With so many talented candidates across the country joining the contest, the evaluation process – carried out with the strictest and fairest judgement – took longer than expected before the winners were announced.
