This is the second time Kent has celebrated success in the EUROPRIX TTA, with former student Liz Valentine winning the EUROPRIX Multimedia Top Talent Thesis Award in 2004.
The EUROPRIX TTA is Europe’s largest competition for students and young professionals who work on innovative projects in the field of e-contents and design. The Quality Seal award recognises outstanding innovation and creativity in multimedia production and is a recognition of the best in multimedia projects, both student and professional, across Europe. It is also awarded to projects which clearly show innovative features and creative ingenuity.
Liz Canning won her Quality Seal award for Confused Zoo, an innovative multimedia application aimed at stage 2 pupils which raises awareness of endangered species in an engaging and entertaining manner, while Paul Turner won his for Creative Toolbox, an online design resource for creative individuals in all areas of design, from 2D and print, to web and new media, to 3D and animation. The Toolbox provides easy access to articles, tutorials, reviews, news, resources and support on relevant topics. It includes a large amount of interactivity, with users having the ability to store content from the site within their own personal toolbox.
Ania Bobrowicz, Lecturer in Multimedia Technology & Design, said: ‘We are absolutely delighted that Liz and Paul have won such a prestigious award, with Liz’s Confused Zoo and Paul’s Creative Toolbox also ranked in the top 10 percent of all EUROPRIX entries this year. Both projects are very good examples of the creative use of technology and innovation stemming from our course.’
An extremely popular and successful course, the BSc in Multimedia Technology & Design at the University of Kent provides a multidisciplinary education for students who seek professional careers in the field of multimedia technology and design. Taught by a team of experts in design, animation, film-making, photography, web technology and programming, graduates are well-equipped to enter such fields as multimedia authoring, web development, web mastering, television, film, electronic games, mobile communications, electronic commerce, internet publishing, computer programming and network management.
Alternatively, they may undertake postgraduate study in courses such as Kent’s MSc in Computer Animation.

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
