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.

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers
Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...
Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.
At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...
3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects
A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...
Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
