EUROPEAN AWARD ON HORIZON FOR HULL GRADUATE

 

A multimedia graduate from the Hull School of Art & Design is in line for a top prize at an international festival in France.

 

John Clemenson, who graduated from the University of Lincoln this summer, is currently exhibiting his multimedia work at e-magiciens, an international digital media festival in Valenciennes.

 

John, who works for the JMP Partnership in Woodmansey, near Beverley, is one of 20 young designers to have been asked to exhibit at the festival and one of five shortlisted for an award.

 

The invitation to exhibit at e-magiciens is the third piece of good news John has had this year. As well as landing a plum job with JMP he also won a British Design and Art Direction New Blood award in June.

 

“E-magiciens is a prestigious new multimedia festival,” said Sarah Humphreys, course leader for Interactive Multimedia at the Hull School of Art & Design.

 

“It’s fantastic both for John and for the university. Just to get there is an achievement and to be exhibited and shortlisted for an award is quite an accolade.”

 

The e-magiciens Gathering of Young Digital Creation 2002 runs until Friday 22nd November and features more than 40 multimedia works and 160 video works including animation, computer generated imaging, documentaries, experimental works, dance and fiction by over 300 registered students from 10 European countries.
