Winning ‘Kid Witness News Global Contest 2018’

By July 30, 2018Blog

What started as a trip to Germany in the autumn last year, turned into a great international adventure.

In October we flew out to Bremerhaven, Germany to run an animation workshop at the German Maritime Museum. Students from Oberschule Geestesmunde, facilitated by Chocolate Films and two participating animators, created the lovely film ‘Die Bremer Kogge’ – telling the story of how Germany’s oldest preserved merchant ship made it from travelling around the world to being buried deep at sea, and to arriving at the German Maritime Museum as a prize piece.

This month, our adventure got an amazing new dimension: the animation film got selected for the Panasonic ‘Kid Witness News Global Contest 2018’ and two German students travelled to Tokyo and presented the film at the awards.

We won!

‘Die Bremer Kogge’ won first prize at the Panasonic ‘Kid Witness News Global Contest 2018’. We are so proud of the students and thank our partner Kinderkluturbüro, Hamburg as well as Oberschule Geestesmunde and the Deutsches Schiffahrtsmuseum. See you next year!
