Saving the Iberian Lynx

Winning Lynx animation

Manchester University run an annual competition that challenges UK students aged 7-19 to create an animated film using their computer. In 2009 the competition coincided with a special issue of cs4fn on 'Programming to save the world'. As a consequence we sponsored a prize for Best Environmental Awareness Animation. It was won by Alison MacPherson from Kinlochbervie High School in Scotland for her animated short on the plight of the Iberian Lynx. Watch it at www.cs.manchester.ac.uk/Animation09/ along with all the other winning entries. Why not give it a go and enter a short yourself next year?
