The CNMA student winners of 2008 were off to the UK where they interned for 4 weeks at 3 reknowned design agencies. Read what they wrote about their adventure: Slugging suitcases, exited faces and underground mischief, is only some of the great off-time experiences three students from the North-West University ‘s Potchefstroom Campus experienced on their internship month in London during their July break. Leana de Beer, Carla Erasmus and Gert Schoeman all three overall student winners of this year Construction New Media Awards hosted by the Design Indaba embarked on an opportunity of a lifetime to intern at two prestigious agencies and one major design magazine. The Construction New Media Awards is such a valuable awards program, especially for the opportunities it poses for young digital creative’s to find their feet within the “global village” but inherently, it also celebrates the best digital South African talent that is on the rise amongst the already established traditional advertising and media industries. The students would like to thank in particular Caryn of the Design Indaba, which without her extremely proficient organizing skills this trip most probably would never have happened. Also, thanking the three agencies, Poke, Digit and Creative Review for allowing these three students the opportunity of a lifetime, and for being so welcoming and forthcoming. As always, we look forward to the produce of 2009 and cant wait to see who pushes the pixel boundaries further and double clicks faster.
