Recognition at the TechSpark SPARKies Awards

Knowle West Media Centre has been shortlisted at annual tech awards the¬†SPARKies, which ‘celebrate the very best of the technology companies, organisations and individuals fuelling the success of the region.’

Our interactive documentary The Glowing Divide has been¬†shortlisted¬†for the Best Innovation in Digital Entertainment award.¬†The¬†film¬†was produced by a team of eight Junior Digital Producers in 2015 and tackled¬†the issue of social isolation amongst teenagers. ¬†It explored what could be done to provide help and support, engaging three isolated young people and providing skills training for a team of first-time filmmakers in the process. The SPARKies Best Innovation in Digital Entertainment award ‘celebrates¬†the best in the West¬†in the spheres of entertainment such as gaming, VR, 3D and novel film-making techniques’.

Four¬†young people supported by KWMC have also been shortlisted¬†for a¬†SPARKies award. ¬†The FutureSPARK category¬†recognises ‘a member of the tech & digital community who is 21 or under and has gone above and beyond in this sector’. ¬†Matt Coleclough, Sam Cording, Ben Coleclough and Katie Gardner created the ‘Lines’ game during the¬†2015 Young Rewired State Festival of Code. They made it to the final with their idea and the game is coming soon to the App store.

The award ceremony will take place on 17th February in Bristol. Read the full shortlist here.
