Gary Boyd, a 3rd year student of Film & Television at IADT, has been selected as the winner of the Fulbright Engage Video Competition! The Competition sought proposals from students to develop a proposal for a fresh and engaging short video that will promote the Fulbright Irish Awards. The Fulbright Irish Awards annually support Irish and E.U. citizens to study, research & lecture in the USA.
The Fulbright Engage Video Competition selection panel was impressed by the volume and high standard of applications received from students of film, media studies, animation and design at institutions around Ireland, including Ballyfermot College, DIT, IADT, LIT, Trinity College Dublin, and University College Cork.
Mr Boyd will receive a prize which includes video production costs and a one-week trip to Manhattan in New York. While there, he will have an opportunity to visit The Museum of Modern Art, New York, to shadow the MoMA Design Studio team, and to visit the School of Media Studies at The New School, to take part in classroom visits, tour of facilities, meetings with students and faculty.
Mr Boyd’s campaign will be showcased on the Fulbright Ireland website and social media channels during the 2018-2019 Fulbright Irish Awards application period this August – October 2107. Watch this space!!
