Cannes Awards Selects British International School of Chicago, Lincoln Park Video as 2017 Festival Winner

Posted on October 3, 2017

The Cannes Corporate Media & TV Awards selected a three-part STEAM DIY Series produced by Chicago-based production house Richter Studios as a recipient of the Silver Dolphin in the Social Media and Short Video category. Winners were announced last Thursday evening in the French Riviera resort town where Richter Studios CEO Jeremy Richter and BISC Lincoln Park Director of Admissions and Marketing, Erin Woodhams, were on hand to receive the award.

The 8th Annual Cannes Corporate Media & TV Awards recognized the world’s finest corporate films, online media and TV documentaries with guests traveling from all over the world to be part of the exclusive awards ceremony. Both BISC Lincoln Park and Richter Studios felt privileged to be among the 174 winners out of 917 entries.

“It is great to see a piece of work focused on learning and STEAM education to be recognized with such a prestigious award,” said Principal Ed Pearce, “Our STEAM collaboration with MIT has opened doors and experiences to our students that will prepare them for a world of jobs yet to be invented. As a primary school focused program, we value the cross-curricular and hands-on learning demonstrated in these videos.”

This is the second win for a joint Richter Studios/BISC Lincoln Park project, and the duo plan to work again this year on another exciting project highlighting the Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Programme.
