A bumper audience of more than 300 filled Leeds College of Music for the RTS Yorkshire Student Awards at the end of February.
The main awards were shared around the region, with the University of Leeds winning the Comedy and Entertainment prize for Jinrun Han and David Oloko’s film Dad Joke Syndrome and the News category for Katya Fowler’s report on the dangers of consuming liquorice, It Takes All Sorts.
Leeds Art University took home the Animation prize for Filipa Santos, Cara Jeal and Haraldur Pétursson’s film Not Alone, while Sheffield Hallam University students Anastasia Shilovich, Amelia Blee and Peter Simison won the Drama award with Beneath My Skin.
The University of York triumphed in the Factual category with The Curiosity of Edward Pratt, which was made by Thomas Sandler, Oscar Godfrey and Alex Gordon, and the Short Form award went to York St John University student Chris Healey for Build.
University of York film Bleed the Floor, a comedy short about a man with a severe case of facial bleeding, picked up two Craft Skills awards: Joe Luk for Camerawork and Thibs Lacombe for Production Design.
