2009 Creative Concept Coffees Award

The winners of the 2009 Creative Concept Coffees Award received a substantial travel grant towards attending DIVERSE 2010 at the University of Southern Maine in Portland, Maine, USA. The award was presented for the best new collaborative project idea developed by delegates at the conference. Five projects were shortlisted and during the closing ceremony, the audience voted for the best idea using the Qwizdom handheld voting system. The idea had to involve a co-operation between at least two countries and the idea had to be at a level suitable for presentation at the DIVERSE 2010 Conference.

See the CCCs PowerPoint summarising the project ideas, in which each group presented their ideas for 2 minutes prior to the audience vote

Winners:

  • Marek Oledzki, Nottingham Trent University, UK; Frank Westland, Tilburg University, Netherlands & Jeroen Bottema, INHolland University, Netherlands: "Bringing the students’ voice to DIVERSE"

Runners Up:

  • Maria Hayes, Aberystwyth University, UK; Deborah Arnold, Videoscop Universite, Nancy 2, France; Stephen Hull, University of Bristol, UK & Alison Walker, Welsh Video Network, Swansea University, UK: "Drawing with Light"
