Round of applause for our sponsors


On behalf of the sponsors and judges, The Rookies would like to congratulate the following caetgory winners.


Fiona Taylor


United Kingdom | Bournemouth University

At school I enjoyed all forms of art and technology- I could get lost in my drawings and creations and before I knew it the day was over! I knew then I wanted to work in the creative media and entertainment industry. While studying Design for Film & Television at uni, I realised I most enjoy working on detailed 3-dimensional designs with the computer being my most valued tool. In 2018 I was accepted onto a Masters Course in 3D Computer Animation and have been developing my skills ever since.
