Every year BIMA, the British Interactive Media Association, launches its search for the 100 most influential, pioneering and groundbreaking people in the digital/tech industry. They are the BIMA 100 and LJMU is excited to announce that Peter Woodbridge is on this year’s list.
Peter Woodbridge was chosen by an independent panel of industry experts in the Creatives and Designers category following a year in which he has worked on a number of pioneering creative technology and immersive experience projects, which you can find on his website: Curious Magic.
Following social distancing guidelines, the announcement was made at an online ceremony hosted by BIMA on 6 May. The ceremony focused on the breadth of achievement of this year’s BIMA 100, demonstrating that there’s no single route to success within the industry.
Peter said. “It’s such a massive honour to be among this years BIMA 100 and that the creative technology work I am involved in is making a difference. To anyone just starting out in the industry and looking to make a success of their career my advice would be to go for it, start making, risk taking, collaborating and experimenting at the boundaries of what you do.“
“Our BIMA 100 is about recognising the people at the forefront of our industry,” explained BIMA Co-President Nat Gross. “They are the people making a fundamental difference to our industry right now and, given the strange circumstances in which we find ourselves, we need their inspiration, innovation and leadership more than ever.
“Fortunately, with people like Peter in this year’s BIMA 100, I think we’re in safe hands.”
