2. BIMA [British Interactive Media Association] Student of the Year Award

Note: Deadline extended until end of April

Website: http://bimaawards.com/

We’re looking for exciting student talent, who have demonstrated their potential through a strong digitally-led idea. The submitted work will demonstrate a clear response to a meaningful challenge, combined with bold creative digital thinking. The idea can be either realised or illustrated – as we’re judging the quality of the thinking not the final execution.

This category is for work (coursework or other) produced by fulltime students studying courses of relevance to the digital industry. Entries should set out the challenge/brief, the insight and proposed solution. Projects could include (but are not limited to) mobile app design, digital marketing innovation, social media campaign concepts etc.

Students should submit their idea as a casefilm and/or digital* presentation board, and a short written entry with the aforementioned headings. [ *Apologies, we cannot accept any entries via post. ]

Previous winners include:

> A smart monitoring app that encourages kids to use less energy by letting them pocket the surplus from a monthly usage target.

> A Facebook campaign that used the negative trend of Nek Nomination into an initiative for blood donation for young people.

The BIMA Awards are the longest standing and most prestigious digital awards in the UK. A BIMA Award is recognised across the industry as a superb symbol of the highest achievement in UK digital, and winning one will set you head and shoulders above the rest.
