Canon UK supports young talent at Creative Media Camp

Canon UK has announced '3 Steps' as the winning team of Creative Media Camp, a summer camp aimed at inspiring young people's creativity. The initiative was run by The Essex Collaborative Outreach Network in partnership with the Ideas Foundation and Canon.

Twenty students took part in the programme at South Essex College, which ran from 1st-5th August. Students attended workshops, led by industry mentors and university academics to help them learn about courses and careers in the creative industries. Working in teams, students answered a brief set by Canon which related to storytelling around travel, fashion or sport.

Surrie Everett-Pascoe, Canon UK's Sustainability and Management Systems Manager said, "Creative Media Camp is a really exciting and important programme for Canon to be involved in. It is a great way for students to gain tools and real work experience, as well as mentorship from some of the best professionals in the creative industry. This helps Canon's aim to continue supporting young and talented people to reach their full potential, which sits in tandem with our company ethos, Kyosei, living and working together for the common good."

The winning team told the story of an alien's unplanned visit to Earth which was executed through an assortment of the graphic, video and photography skills developed during the Creative Media Camp.

The finals were held at the Open experience centre at Canon Europe's office in Stockley Park, London with each member of the winning team receiving £100 worth of Canon's products. The winners were announced by the judging panel which included; Heather MacRae, Managing Director, Ideas Foundation, Jo Taylor, Corporate & Marketing, Communications Manager, South Essex College and Kishan Koriya, Corporate & Marketing Communications, Canon EMEA.
