Imagine Cup; UK Bags 1st Place in Short Film and 3rd in Games Development


We’re now all back from Cairo and fully recovered from the heat and sleep deprivation. The great news is that across the board the UK teams excelled with both the Short Film and Games Development making it on stage at the final.

Our Short Film team (Fulham Four) were from the London Film Academy and created an excellent short featuring a mummy particularly keen on interior design which went down very well with the judges and bagged the top spot. Once we have their film online I’ll post a link.

Sanguine Labs, our Games Development team haled from Bournemouth University and beat off stiff competition to secure third place with their game DEFILE of Eden.

Both our Software and Embedded teams placed in the top 12 internationally and our IT Challenge competitor in the top 10. Overall excellent results considering at the beginning of the competition there were more than 300,000 students in the mix! For all the results see the official Imagine Cup website.

Everyone had a great time and the highlight was definitely the closing ceremony held in front of the pyramids (see above photo). Next year the Imagine Cup final will be held in Warsaw so start thinking about your entries now and you might be joining us next year! Visit to find out more.
