We are pleased to announce that the Decade of Centenaries Timeline has been nominated for the Celtic Media Festival Kieran Hegarty Award For Innovation. The nomination coincides with the publication of our booklet of Decade of Centenaries Suggested Activities to accompany the website.
This is a great example of bringing a historical story to life via a digital medium. It was possible to follow the action via timeline with a visual map, with the quality of associated content of a very high standard. The narration of the action and sound effects gave a great sense of being drawn into the developing plot which kept all jurors engaged for far longer than originally than anticipated. It was also noted that there was an accompanying mobile phone app for an interactive guided tour of the walls of Derry, it was a very well thought out and delivered project. A very worthy winner.
