Tiff makes The Drum’s ’50 Under 30′

Corwin Bainbridge


Tiffany got worthy recognition by making The Drum’s Top 50 women in digital under 30.

We are presuming it’s not ranked in order as to paraphrase Brian Clough “In our opinion we wouldn’t say she’s the best woman working in digital under 30. But she’s in the Top 1′.

Well done Ms. Maddox


Ramillas Interactive Fund Win

Tiffany Maddox

We’ve just come back from Sheffield Doc Fest (after having a blast) and not only was it a privilege to see all of the great work on show, but we’ve also managed to scoop a beautiful award in the form of the Ramillas Interactive Fund 2014.

The trophy, together with a cash prize of 3000 Euros, was awarded to the best of 5 projects pitched to an international panel of judges during the Sheffield Docfest. We’ll be using the fund to further our film ‘The Risk Takers Survival Guide‘ which is currently in development.

The Risk Takers Survival Guide is being made in collaboration with Dr James Lyons of Exeter University and with the support of REACT (Funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council), an organisation which brings academics and the creative industry together to make awesome collaborations happen.

A big thanks to all of the judges for their support; Emma Hindley (Grierson Trust, UK), Annika Gustafson (BoostHbg, Sweden), Alexandre Brachet (Upian, France), Mark Atkin (Crossover Labs, UK) and Guy Spriggs (Ramillas, Spain) and to Spanish artist Alberto Carvajal who designed the chic and interactive award. It’s already become a talking point and will be taking pride of place in the office :)
