Faction Films’ Interactive Web Documentary Invisible Picture Show won the Google Digital Media Award at the 2014 One World Media Awards at a ceremony in London presented by Channel 4 News’ Jon Snow. Caroline Spry, Senior Lecturer, BA(Hons) Filmmaking is one of the Executive producers.
Tim Travers Hawkins’ documentary about children in immigration detention centres around the world, was one of three nominees for the award, alongside The Guardian’s Walled World and France24’s Iranorama.
The jury described it as:
“a very powerful and haunting piece of work. The evocative and creative treatment was a virtue, achieved by combining the sound of real voices with the immersive style of a graphic novel. The children involved and their stories are, by definition, hidden, and this project brought them to our attention with an emotional intensity unusual in digital story-telling.”
The One World Awards recognize “strong vibrant and independent media that empowers citizens, promotes justice and contributes to international development” and the Google- sponsored Digital Media Category is specifically aimed at innovative online forms.
