Hull in Not Winning Imagine Cup Competition Shock

The UK Final for the Microsoft Imagine Cup Software Development competition was in London on the 5th of June. Hull Computer Science Department has a very good reputation in this competition. We have had Hull students in every UK final so far, and won the last three.

But not this time. Congratulations go to to Dominic Green from Manchester University and Ben Nunney from Greenwich University who won with their entry “EnviroMatch” which uses a series of games to help to educate young people on environmental issues.

However, the long reach of Hull extends even into the winners for this year. Tom Randell, an ex-Hull graduate and Imagine Cup winner from 2006, was the industrial mentor for the winning team. Tom now works at Content Master and has been giving them the benefits of his experience in perfecting their entry. He will now be going to Paris with the team for the world final.

Rob Miles from Hull will also be going along as a judge for the contest.
