Schools and Colleges Awards

We want to celebrate all the brilliant work that goes on using film and TV in schools and colleges, and the phenomenal filmmaking talent of young people.  To recognise young people’s love of film, to spotlight some of our finest rising stars and to honour our most influential educators, we’ve created a new series of awards, in partnership with Into Film Cymru and Screen Alliance Wales to celebrate the amazing work of young creatives.  

The University is committed to celebrating the achievements of all participants. The application deadline has been extended to Friday 24 July and we look forward to celebrating with our finalists early in the 2020-21 academic year.
