Isabel D’Cruz Animation12 Winner Awarded by Kenneth Flowers

September 19, 2012 News

An audience of Colossusonline donors, The National Museum of Computing TNMOC members and the Flowers family gathered at TNMOC on Thursday evening for a special viewing of progress in the ongoing refurbishment of the Colossus Gallery.

One of the highlights of the evening was an award-winning short animation of The Life of Tommy Flowers made by the then 10-year-old Isabel D'Cruz. Isabel, who made the video in March this year, won the KS2 category of Animation12 at the University of Manchester in July.
