And the winner is… (part 1)

Our video The Power of Comparative Genomics was shortlisted for an in-house production award at the National Learning on Screen Awards, which took place on the 18th April. The awards “celebrate and reward excellence in the use of moving image and related media in learning, teaching and research”. Nominees in other categories included productions for the BBC and the Oscar-nominated (and multiaward winning) short Head Over Heels.

As it turns out, our category was won by the Celebrating Dickens Documentary, produced by the University of Warwick. However we didn’t come away from the evening empty-handed. Our video was given a Special Commendation, an honour which includes the rather fetching green logo now sported on the right-hand side of this website (and a larger copy within this post). In making their decision, the judges praised The Power of Comparative Genomics for keeping momentum and viewer interest in a complex subject. The clarity of graphics (produced by David Wickins from Multimedia Services at the University) was also commended.

The full list of winners for 2013 can be seen here.
