Two UK winners announced at Tokyo Video Festival

Two British filmmakers have won awards at the prestigious JVC Tokyo Video Festival 2002 (TVF 2002) in Japan.
A total of 30 video works were selected from all over the world including the two British winners, Ben Skea from Glasgow and Jamie Lowe from London.
Ben Skea, a freelance Motion Graphics artist, won his award for the film 'Homegrown'. A one-minute-long video animation, 'Homegrown', which was made without the use of traditional narrative, explores the world of genetic reproduction.
The other UK winner, 33-year-old video artist, Jamie Lowe, picked up his award for 'A Road To Ruin', a 20-minute short film about the protests against the Newbury by-pass. The film followed the environmental protestors as they gathered to confront the police and construction workers at the building site. It was selected for the JVC Tokyo Video Festival as a prizewinner for its interesting view of the protests.
Each TVF 2002 winner receives a Cheque for ´100,000 (about £500) as well as a framed certificate and award plaque.
TVF 2002 had a new record level of participation with a total of 2,270 video works submitted from 43 countries and regions. This is the highest number of video works the JVC Tokyo Video Festival has ever received at a single event.
Entries to the 25th JVC Tokyo Video Contest will start in July and close around November 2002. Camcorder enthusiasts wanting to enter the competition can pick up leaflets from their nearest JVC Digital Photographic Centre or call the JVC press office on +44 (0) 20 8208 7623 for further information.
