Promising a wonderful night of entertainment this year’s Pen and Pixel exhibition launches at LIT Clonmel at 6:30pm, Thursday, April 26 with refreshments on offer on the night - it’s an event not to be missed.

Bringing together the best photography, animation, games, graphic art and audio work from the students of the college this exhibition promises to be an exciting and interactive display.

This year for the first time in its history Pen and Pixel has opened its doors to work from local secondary schools and primary schools with the work from the primary schools forming Pen & Pixel Junior.

Completely organised from the ground up by the third year students of the creative multimedia degree programme, Pen and Pixel is a vital event in the college calendar.

“The final step in any piece of multimedia is the ultimate exhibition people see it, they review it and sometimes they buy it”, says Bernard Goldbach, Senior Multimedia Lecturer at Limerick Institute of Technology.

The creative multimedia degree programme in LIT Clonmel enjoys its highest number of applicants ever this year, with more than 70 students expressing an interest in starting the programme this August.

Creative multimedia graduates commonly fill jobs as web developers, social media analysts, photographers, audio specialists and video producers. These specialisms form part of the Knowledge Society where employment prospects remain strong.
