Having won 1st Prize in the
UK round, Contemporary Lens Media final year student Kenny van Mierlo is now representing the University with a 2nd place win in the video category of the overall European finals of this year's Young Creative Chevrolet competition! He will receive his prize in Los Angeles later this year.
The top-three European YCC 2012 winners per discipline will receive a total cash prize of (€5,200, €4,200 and €3,200, respectively) and be honored at a gala YCC award night to be held in
Hollywood/ Los Angeles on 19 October.
YCC 2012 drew an unprecedented number of entries around this year's creative theme of opportunity and empowerment. Chevrolet received over 1,000 submissions from students representing 280 European applied art schools, also a new record.
We are obviously very proud of Kenny, who joined us in the final year from our partner college Sint Lucas in Boxtell, The Netherlands. This is by far the biggest prize that a student from Contemporary Lens Media has ever won! You can watch his video by clicking on the above link; the above image is a still from the video.
