MEDEA Awards Finalist
Normally, it’s us giving out the awards to celebrate the very best films you send in. However, SciCast — the whole project — is itself up for an award. We’re one of eight finalists for the MEDEA Awards 2009.
MEDEA is a pan-European organisation that ‘recognises excellence and creativity in media in education’, so we’re utterly thrilled to be recognised by them. Katie and I are jetting off to Berlin at the end of the week for the Awards event, and to meet the other finalists, who range from an astronomy project from the European Southern Observatory to an Italian schools’ project about local traditions across the continent.
Of course, we wouldn’t have got anywhere without all the terrific support and particularly films contributed by so many of you over the last few years. Reaching this stage of the MEDEA Awards is a wonderful recognition of the imaginative, insightful, and plain crazy work done by SciCasters across the UK and Ireland.
Yay us: all of us.
