The Curzon Memories App, developed by Dr Charlotte Crofts from UWE Bristol, has been nominated for the British Universities Film and Video Council's 'Learning On Screen Awards' 2013 under the category of General Non-Broadcast / Multimedia Award.
The award will be presented at a special ceremony at BFI Southbank, London where the winners will be announced on Thursday 18 April 2013.
Dr Crofts enthused, "I'm delighted that the Curzon Memories App has been nominated. The cinema celebrated its centenary this year and we worked hard to create an innovative app which would illuminate the cinema's history for visitors. I would like to thank Gareth Negus, Cathy Poole and Hilary Neal at The Curzon Community Cinema, Jo Reid at Calvium, Tarim and all at the Pervasive Media Studio and the UWE Digital Cultures Research Centre and Early Career scheme for supporting my research."
The Learning on Screen Awards celebrate and reward excellence in the use of moving image and related media in learning, teaching and research.
The Awards are open to broadcast, non-broadcast and multimedia entries, from broadcasters, production companies, education providers and museum personnel, as well as anyone else producing educational media (broadcast, non-broadcast & multimedia).
Postgraduate, undergraduate and further education students can also enter via the Student Production Award.
