BIMA Digital Day

On Tuesday 15th November the Alsop Media students took part in a nationwide competition organised by BIMA.

The only digital initiative of its kind, Digital Day is aimed at 13-18 year olds and sees digital professionals head back to school for a day to inspire students and give them insight into a world of digital careers. We were lucky enough to be paired up with Glow New Media, who are an award winning mobile app and web design agency based in Liverpool. Phil Blything, director of the company gave the students a great insight into how his company operates and the possibilities that lay ahead for the students.

The afternoon session was dedicated to the nationwide competition where students completed one of three sponsored challenges to be in with the chance of being crowned Digital Day champions – winning £500 cash for the school plus a host of other cool prizes.

The lucky winners of the day were 5 media students whose work will now be put forward as representatives of Alsop.

The winning school will be announced in early January, so fingers crossed!!!

Thanks again to BIMA for arranging this fantastic event and Glow New Media for their time and support.
