Seneca students sweep Digital Media Industry of Ontario awards

The first Digital Market Meet Up, held by The Digital Media Industry of Ontario (DMIO) and hosted by the City of Toronto at Nathans Phillips Square, included more than 32 representatives from various animation and special effects studios, software vendors, colleges, government representatives and other organizations.

Students, freelancers and artists were given opportunities to meet representatives in person, distribute their resumes and get/receive feedback that is crucial to seeking and retaining jobs in the industry today.

Sweeping all three awards offered by DMIO, based on a review of their work, were Seneca 3D Animation students Rachit Raval, Mark Hammond and Mariana Gomez. They were awarded three-month paid internships by Switch VFX, Spinpro, and Keyframe Digital.
