Success for students at Royal Television Society Yorkshire Student Awards

22 November 10

Students from the School of Computing, Informatics and Media at the University of Bradford have won recognition for their work at the Royal Television Society (RTS) Yorkshire Student Awards.

The University has retained its ten year record of continuous prize winning at the glitzy regional awards which give students the opportunity to showcase their work to some of the industry's big names. 

The Royal Television Society (RTS) Yorkshire Student Awards recognise the best student work from across the region each year, generating a high standard of entries and strong competition.  These are the only awards which are judged by professionals in the television and broadcasting industry and are the gold standard of quality. 

The Entertainment category was won by final-year students Peter Janaway, Jack Silverman, Vicky Weeden, Andrew Sykes and Melissa Szuzko.  Their final-year project 'Neighbourhood Noise' looks at the underground live music scene in Bradford through the eyes of musicians.  Their work was commended for having excellent camera work, creative editing and having a wide variety of artists which affirmed that music can be integral to the character and identity of a city.

Final year students Gavin Russell, Ashley Jones, Chris Solier, Bilal Afzal and Damen Hughes came runner up in the Factual category with 'Highly Addicted' which revealed the lives and experiences of a drug world of a northern city.

Speaking about the success, Ian Palmer, Dean of the School of Computing, Informatics and Media said: "The University is very proud that it attracts talented students who can produce work which is consistently admired by professionals."
