corner corner Second BAFTA Nomination for The Lost Book
March 11, 2010

Online animated whodunit and BookCrossing Partner The Lost Book has received a nomination in the Interactive category for the BAFTA Scotland New Talent Awards 2010. This is the second BAFTA Scotland nomination for the project, which narrowly missed out on a prize in 2009. The awards, held in Glasgow this year on 19 March, highlight and promote some of the most innovative and exciting new talent in film-making in Scotland.

The nomination isn't just for the project team at Binary Fable in Edinburgh;
it's also for everyone who contributed to the story. Many BookCrossers
took part, suggesting plot ideas, naming characters, and even inventing a
secret society of bibliophiles. 241 books were released during release
challenges for The Lost Book and over 1000 other books were set free by the
project, thanks to sponsors Canongate and the Edinburgh UNESCO City of
Literature Trust's 2009 reading campaign.

You can still join in through bookrays. There's a wide range of books on
offer, including bestsellers by our guest writer Jasper Fforde, signed
novels by China Mieville and Linda Gillard, and a selection of titles from
Canongate - see TheLostBook's profile for the full list.
