Bradford Media students celebrate Royal Television Society Awards

17 May 12


University of Bradford media students are on a roll, as their final year project has not only picked up the 2012 Royal Television Society (RTS) Yorkshire Student Factual Entertainment Award, and was one of three finalists for the RTS National student award of the same category.

The student documentary 'Fired by Facebook' looks at the rising trend of people being fired or experiencing other mishaps, through the use and misuse of Facebook. The group attended the RTS national awards held in the Barbican on Friday May 25 to see whether their piece will beat off competition from two other finalist competitors in the ‘Factual Entertainment’ category.

Ian Palmer, Dean of the School of Computing, Informatics and Media said: "We are thrilled that this year our students have continued the School’s impressive record of over a decade of winning Royal Television Society (RTS) Yorkshire Student Awards across a range of categories.

It is gratifying to see that the work our students do, while studying, is recognised to be of outstanding quality by professionals in the television and broadcasting industry which bodes well for their careers as graduates."
