The Media Design School has had five of its short films selected as finalists across two categories in this year’s Best Awards. The Best Design Awards, known as the Best Awards, are described as New Zealand's annual showcase of excellence in graphic, spatial, product and interactive design. The awards are judged by an array of domestic and international industry professionals. Each discipline has professional and student categories that include emerging and established designers.
Three of the third year student films, "Reapercussions," "Impasse," and "Fawn," have been selected as finalists in the student category of New Zealand's Best Interactive Design Awards. Two other productions, "Over the Moon" and "Shelved," which were created as final year student productions, were nominated in the Moving Images professional category.
The winners of the Best Awards will be announced on October 9, 2015.
