University of South Wales (USW) BA (Hons) Visual Effects and Motion Graphics student Jordanne Richards scooped a top award at last week’s RTS Student Television Awards 2016.

Jordanne’s film ‘An Unfortunate End: The Boy & The Fairy’ – which is described as ‘a dark fairy tale, written with originality and enhanced through excellent production design’ - won the Undergraduate Open award at the event.

Chaired by Philip Edgar-Jones, Director of Sky Arts, the Awards celebrate the best in student television.

The Undergraduate and Postgraduate Awards are judged in six categories – Animation, Comedy & Entertainment, Drama, Factual, News, and Open.

In addition, to reward excellence in craft skills, Undergraduate and Postgraduate Awards are presented for Camerawork, Editing and Sound.

Students from higher education institutions in England, Wales and Northern Ireland picked up awards.

Jordanne’s film will be available to watch on Sky Arts On Demand later this year.
