Learning On Screen winners announced

Winners announced for the 12th annual Learning on Screen Awards, the UK’s only celebration of film and media production in education

The awards, held by the British Universities Film & Video Council, recognise the innovative ways film and media are used to educate, with special categories highlighting productions from students at UK colleges and universities.

This year the jury debated forty-four nominations across twelve categories, including Student Documentary, FE Student Production, General Educational Broadcast and Educational Multimedia, as well as presenting the Special Jury Award and Premier Award to two productions that really impressed.    

The Premier Award was presented to CODENAME WINTERHILL: BOLTON STORYWORLD, an innovative and immersive piece of digital storytelling from the University of Bolton and Bellyfeel. Delivered through smartphones, this outstanding production was unlike anything the jury have seen before.  

But the big winner on the night was undoubtedly JUST SOME MORNING TEA, directed and produced by George Summers from Truro College, which scooped both the Further Education Student Production Award and the Special Jury Award. The jury felt this simple but beautifully crafted animation demonstrated excellent control not only of the camera but also of sound, editing, music and lighting, and had a satisfying twist in its tail.

Chair of the Jury, Ian Wall, Director of Education at The Film Space, commented of the evening: “Every year we see outstanding submissions and we always wonder if the high standard can be repeated. This year certainly did not let us down, with submissions making it very difficult to settle on our eventual list of category winners. I’d like to personally congratulate all our winners and nominees, and thank them for a thoroughly enjoyable evening.”
