What do the Church of England, the Ministry of Justice and the University of Oxford, all have in common? Well, as of today, they are all proud owners of some platinum award-winning animation by the Scriberia animation team. And we're guessing they're as excited as we are.
We won't play it cool. There has been an avalanche of celebratory emojis on the Scriberia Slack channels following the DotComm Awards announcement. To win one award would have been cause for celebration. But, against stiff international competition, all four of the projects we entered brought home the platinum. And that really is a testament to the extraordinary talent and dedication of our team. They are quite literally the best and we're very, very proud of them.
I truly believe that Scriberia is home to some of the best creative minds in animation. They give their all to every brief. And the DotComm judging panel saw that when they awarded all of our entries with their highest accolade.

"Awards aren’t everything, but when you work as hard as this team does, it is hugely gratifying to see those efforts recognised," says Karen Sonego, Scriberia's senior producer of animation. "I truly believe that Scriberia is home to some of the best creative minds in animation. They give their all to every brief. And clearly, the DotComm judging panel saw that when they awarded all of our entries with their highest accolade.”
OUR WINNING ENTRIES
Coping with Voices (Oxford Sparks)
Our team worked with researchers from the University of Oxford to convey the experience of people who hear negative, nasty voices. Through animation, it was possible to depict an isolating and invisible affliction, in a way that empowered those affected and enabled a wider audience to better understand the impact of the condition and how to help.
Digital & Technology (Ministry of Justice)
This short explainer animation for the Ministry of Justice tells the story of how digital technology can make this historic and vital institution more responsive to change and more flexible in future.
Understanding Covid-19 Transmission (Oxford Sparks)
Commissioned in April 2020, this explainer animation on the science of predictive modelling was at the cutting edge of pandemic science communication. Researchers from the University of Oxford, Imperial College London, the National Institute for Health Research and the Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis were seeking to explain how past data would be used to shape the global response to COVID-19, at a time when misinformation was spreading as rapidly as the virus itself. This animation also won a silver medal at this year's Corporate Content Awards Europe.
People & Places (Church of England)
This bright and beautiful animation for the Church of England focuses on explaining the role of "oversight ministers", working in and around Birmingham. It's their job to act as hosts in the church community, ensuring that everyone feels welcomed and cared for.
