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.

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
