G-Technology Begins Search For The Most Creative Projects

G-Technology has announced that it is kicking off its annual search for the most inspiring and creative projects in the UK through its 2013 Driven Creativity Competition.
The annual competition, open to both professionals and amateurs, recognises and supports artists' hard work and creative passion in five categories: animation, music, photography, short film and GoPro Active. The competition is free to participants and entries will be accepted from June 27 until October 29, 2013 at g-technology.eu/competition.
The 2013 Driven Creativity overall winner will be selected from all categories, both professional and amateur, and will be awarded €5,000 to use toward their next creative project as well as the new G-Technology G-DOCK™ ev with Thunderbolt® storage system.
A professional winner, an amateur winner and a runner-up will be selected from each of the categories: animation, music, photography and short film. There will also be one winner and a runner-up for the GoPro Active category of short videos from content captured using a GoPro wearable or gear-mountable camera, as well as a People's Choice Award winner for the entry with the highest online votes. The category winners and runners-up will all receive high-performance, premium external storage solutions from G-Technology's range of products designed for creative professionals.
The 2013 Driven Creativity Competition aims to recognise, promote and reward brilliant work from both established professionals and up-and-coming talent. All entries to the competition, regardless of size or budget, have equal chances to win due to a unique judging process; entries will be judged not only on aesthetic quality, but also on the innovation and drive that went into creating them.
With their submissions, entrants also have the opportunity to pull back the curtain on their inspiration for the piece and share how they would use the competition prizes to further their next creative projects.
The overall winner of last year's competition was 'A Fox Tale', created by a group of four students headed up by Julien Legay of France. Their project was entered into the professional animation category and focused on 'the poetic and artistic side of Asia'.
"We were so proud to win the G-Technology Driven Creativity Awards last year," said Legay. "We were a group of students, fascinated by animated feature films from the likes of Pixar® and Dreamworks® and have so much passion for animation and filmmaking. It's great that G-Technology offers a platform for people like us to showcase our work and recognises the efforts that go into it. The Driven Creativity Awards are proof that you can be rewarded for hard work and determination and we intend to enter the awards again this year."
The UK People's Choice award went to Geoff Tompkinson, in the Professional Short Film category, for DUBAI – City on the Move, which displayed stunning shots of the dynamic and futuristic city.
