Once again it’s that time of year when we get the opportunity to meet with some of the best students currently studying Advertising with Design (BA Hons) at The University of Northampton and award our annual Engine Creative Prize.
With such a strong year it was difficult to choose between them and, following interviews with a shortlist of candidates for the prize, we are happy to announce that Annabel Rogerson is the Engine Creative Prize winner for 2011.
Our Strategic Director, Andy Wise, met with the students:
“I was really impressed by the students in terms of the way they presented themselves and their subject knowledge. Annabel stood out for me because of her passion for how marketing can be integrated into the gaming world; an area which particularly resonates with ourselves and some of our clients at the moment. In addition, Annabel is extremely bright and has a positive and open personality which will serve her well in the creative industry.
The University of Northampton has a growing reputation for getting the very best out of its students academically whilst also building strong links with industry. This is a powerful combination which directly contributes to the creative industry whilst also delivering wider economic and social impacts.”
Award winner Annabel receives a cash prize and will take up a work placement with Engine Creative as part of the award.
The prize was established in 2008 to recognise creative talent and industry potential for students of the Advertising with Design (BA Hons) course at The University of Northampton. Run by the Northampton Business School, the course has consistently produced talented graduates that have gone on to forge successful careers in the creative, advertising and marketing industry.
