The winners of this year’s BAFTA Interactive awards were presented last night at a glittering ceremony in London. 18 awards were presented across the whole range of digital creativity, with winners including David Bowie and the BBC – which won three of the awards.
The range of different media that won awards was much trumpeted by BAFTA.
"The diversity of this year’s winners is a true reflection of today’s interactive entertainment," said Lord Puttnam, vice president of BAFTA, "from art installations, interactive television and WAP through CD-ROMs, Web sites and games."
The BBC picked up awards for its broadband sports coverage, and its news and history Web sites. Glasshead and Cimex were awarded for their Homework High site for Channel 4, with Deep End picking up a BAFTA for the company’s work on the Cartoon Network UK site. XPT picked up an award for OnlineCaroline.com, as did Digit1 for the MTV2 Web site and Rare for the graphics in Perfect Dark. David Bowie was given the Berners-Lee Award for Best Personal Contribution to the UK Interactive Industry for his BowieNet online community.
