The World Needs Your Creativity: Winners!

It’s been amazing to see the animations entered for the #BeACreativeProducer Animation Competition! The teenage #BeACreativeProducer team of Alex, Amelia, Immy, Lluis and Rowan can be very proud of all the creativity they have inspired!

We had a very difficult but hugely enjoyable time watching the animations and thinking carefully about how to choose the winners.  We had 32 entries: the standard was very high and the outcomes very varied. 

“All the entries we received were really very impressive. The ways everyone interpreted the brief were engaging and interesting but all completely unique – some of them made us laugh and others made us cry! The range of topics made them quite difficult to judge as they were all such high quality! Well done to everyone who took part for entering such incredible animations – and especially to those who won prizes and were shortlisted.” Immy, #BeACreativeProducer Team Member

In the end, after judging against our criteria (did the animation answer the brief? was it innovative? did it communicate its message?) the team decided we had to have more prize winners! Using money raised in their Crowdfunder as prize money, the teenage team very generously decided themselves to award the following prizes! 

Congratulations to all who entered – its was such a hard choice and we loved receiving your work. All the entries below will be shown at the Opening Night of the #BeACreativeProducer Project at Cambridge Junction on the 28th February 2019.

Watch this space for the next competition. 

Winner - Ben Heiss The Henry's Odyssey Prize Wins £100 Voucher

The #BeACreativeProducer team of judges loved the very clear message behind this animation which answered the brief of “The World Needs Your Creativity” so brilliantly. They also thought the music worked well with the visuals. Great story telling and great pace! Well done Ben.

Second Prize - Zuzanna, Mariam, Malaikah The Scolaquip Prize - Wins £75 Voucher

The judges thought this was a very powerful animation and very much echoed the messages behind the larger #BeACreativeProducer project. Created by 3 girls from Dixons City Academy in Bradford, the judges loved it because it was graphically very strong.
