HULL STUDENTS IN RUNNING FOR TOP AWARD

 

Students from the University of Lincoln in Hull have taken four out of six places on a shortlist for the prestigious British Interactive Media Association (BIMA) student awards 2002.

 

The students from the Hull School of Art and Design who make up a shortlist of six are John Clemenson for his 3rd year project ‘The Journey’, Alex Mackenzie for his 3rd year Professional Practice piece, Ryan Gibson for his 3rd year major project rgpBBS and exchange student Timo Koro from Finland for the Hull Film website.

 

Renowned as the most esteemed new media competition in Europe, BIMA’s annual awards set the standard for the industry, celebrating creative excellence and craftsmanship within digital media.

 

The student award - which was open to anyone on a full-time higher education course - will recognise the best use of digital media by a student or team.

 

The work must have been produced as part of the course and the work can be individual or collaborative. The judges will be looking for exciting and innovative creative ideas in interactive design and functionality.

 

The lucky winners are to be announced at the BIMA party on October 3rd 2002.
