A 24-year-old animator and illustrator from Belfast has been named the 'UK's coolest techie' in a competition aimed at challenging 'computer nerd' stereotypes.

Ashling Lindsay, a self-taught animator and the owner of Pink Bottle Productions, was picked out by UK schoolchildren aged eight to 15 as the person most likely to inspire them to choose IT as a career. She is currently in the process of creating her own cartoon sketch show and also carries out commissions.

Ashling said: "I feel shocked and honoured to have won this award. I hope that I have demonstrated to young people that there is much more to IT than just sitting at a computer using spreadsheets."
