Harton Media Studies Awards 2016

On Monday the 12th of December we hosted our fourth annual media studies awards ceremony in the lecture theatre. The awards recognised the hard work and talent of all our media studies students put into their coursework. This year there was an impressive array of coursework on display from movie trailers and music videos to posters and magazines, each of which highlighted our students originality.

The night was a great success with 18 awards being handed out in total. Presented by Mr Ward and Mrs Brown, the evening kicked off with the nominations for best advert or trailer. The talent in this category was evidently clear as the judges decided to award two people the win, Chloe for her series of adverts on King washing up liquid, and Joshua for his trailer for his own fictional gangster movie The Job. Numerous other awards followed throughout the evening including best director, best poster and best performance which were won by Emily, Jamiul and Lewis respectively. As the end of the evening drew near Cheria won the award for best year 12 production for her magazine Sporting Monthly. Picking up the best year 13 production was Lauren for her music video Happy Little Pill, and rounding off the night was Lewis who won the best overall production award for his trailer about his own fictional thriller Under the Shadows of the Clouds.

It was an all round lovely event and a great pleasure to see many former students return for the ceremony.
