Congratulations to Victoria Mapplebeck and Andy Glynne for winning The Merging Media Prize for Best European Project in competition at Power to the Pixel.
The prize was awarded for their multi-platform project Text Me, part funded by Creativeworks London and Channel 4. Text Me is an animated documentary and multi-platform storytelling project, exploring the multitude of stories and memories hidden in our phone memories. The Merging Media prize offers automatic selection to the Merging Media Conference and Pitch 360 Competition in November which will be held in Vancouver.
At the Power to the Pixel award ceremony last week, Victoria and her Executive Producer Andy Glynne from Mosaic Films were presented with the award by Liz Rosenthal , CEO and Founder of Power to the Pixel and Christine Lim-Labossière, Executive Director of Merging Media .
Liz Rosenthal, said, “The Cross-Media Forum continues to break new ground by bringing the latest and most exciting cross-media projects before potential partners and investors. It is the quality and innovation of the projects and their creators coming together within a live working programme, the desire to share experience and the knowledge that the Cross-Media Forum has led to many success stories with projects being funded and released into the world which has excited our new partners from Canada.
Christine Lim-Labossière, Executive Director of Merging Media 2013 said, “We hope that the Merging Media Pixel Market Prize we are sponsoring, will be instrumental in encouraging co-production ties between Canada and Europe, and become a solid building block in the development of a vibrant bridge between the two regions.”
