Noorie said that she had gone through rigorous work and practice before bringing her campaign to its final shape. She said that it was good that students have displayed their thesis work following practical practices that could help them in their professional career.

Ayesha Arshad used truck art for her campaign. She said that she had used it to highlight the fact that within the country, transportation was carried out by trucks and within the city, transportation was carried out through pickups and vans. She added that she had highlighted truck art, as it was exclusively a Pakistani art.

Azeem Mumtaz launched his campaign on Haier's washing machine. His campaign slogan was 'Making Clothes Alive and Our Technology For Your Life Style.' His campaign revolved around various intriguing ideas of washing and clothing.

Nadra Naeem from the Lahore College for Women University (LCWU) and Hasan Zaki from the Punjab University were the teachers marking the theses.
