The most creative European e-talent 2006

I was reminded of the new edition of the EUROPRIX Top Talent Award (TTA) by a newsletter of the Instructors' Network and by a mail of my Finnish friend Cai. He and his colleague Sohvi had a week of full of activities in Hämeenlinna featuring TTA Road Show.

The TTA is starting a new award edition. It will be the fourth edition of the TTA contest for students and young professionals in the field of e-content and design. These four editions were preceded by five edition in which only students in the field of e-content and design , but as the competition was limited to students only in the first five editions from 1998 till 2002, it is in fact the ninth edition.

The TTA solicits innovative projects in the field of e-contents and design - using whatever multimedia channel or platform. Projects can be submitted in 8 categories. And there are also other awards such as Content Fusion Award, Thesis Award and the new ATI Special Award.

The TTA is a truly European contest. In 2004 there were 414 entries from 29 European countries and in 2005 no less than 411 entries from 32 countries.

It is a real contest as there is also prize money involved. At the next Top Talent Festival in Vienna from November 23 till 26, 2006, prizes worth a total value of 80.000 Euros will be waiting for nominees and winners.

Creative multimedia projects can be submitted from April 1 to June 30, 2006. For more info have a look at the site. Click here for registration.

Of the past editions various catalogues have been produced. Printed catalogues have been published, which are real art books. But there are also DVDs and there is a website available, presenting past winners and nominees. This should be obligatory study material for content specialists and designers. For the printed catalogues and the DVDs you can contact office@europrix.org.
