An international video and multimedia award has been won by TWI.
The winning entry, TWI's multimedia programme Welding Fume Tutor, was devised to enlighten staff, engaged in a welding environment, of the hazards of welding fume.
The André Leroy medal is named after the onetime director general of the French Institut de Soudure and until recently was awarded for excellence in film and video programme production related to the subject of welding. In recent years the scope of entries has been broadened to embrace multimedia programmes.
The award was made at the annual assembly of the International Institute of Welding, held this summer in Florence, Italy.
The citation acknowledged the efforts of a multi-faceted production team led by Graham Carter, TWI's welding fume specialist, Martin Bourton and Linda Godden on the multimedia side and the photographic and video work of Brian Smith, Simon Condie and Roy Smith.
The award was accepted at the IIW opening ceremony, held in Florence's magnificent Palazzo Vecchio, by TWI's Editor of Television, John Dadson.
