The Olympic Museum win International Award for ‘Inside the Race’ and ‘Opening Ceremonies’
Congratulations to The Olympic Museum for their Grand Prix Avicom 2014 award win on Saturday 20th September.
The award ceremony took place in Moscow at the Tretyakov State Gallery and the special award was presented to Paul Kucharski, Creative Director of Centre Screen (left in the above image) and David Parietti, Head of International Projects for the Olympic Museum (right in the above image), by the organisation’s President Tari Janos.
The International Audiovisual Festival on Museums and Heritage (FIAMP) is designed to promote the achievements of museums using new image and sound technologies. The awards are selected by a panel of experts and the Grand Prix AVICOM, previously known as the Claude-Nicole Hocquard Award, is the most prestigious award at the event, which is given to the best museographic depiction of collections.
On winning the award, Paul Kucharski said, “For Centre Screen it is a privilege to have worked on developing the new The Olympic Museum and continue to work with museum team. We were extremely honoured to share the stage with the Museum when this prestigious award was presented at the FIAMP ceremony and we are really pleased to be the company to help make this award possible for the museum.”
FIAMP highlights the best international achievements of audiovisual and multimedia museum projects and the judges, this year, considered a range of AV material developed by Centre Screen in the Olympic Museum’s submission for the award. This included the epic immersive AVs ‘Opening Ceremonies’ and ‘Inside the Race’, which you can watch below.
