University of Plymouth hits home hat-trick

A group of people pose with an award

A record 27 entries were received from six universities and colleges in the region.

The Factual: Short Form award went to Tom Box’s Dancing Minds, which the judges admired for its “contemporary visual style.… We really got to know the young people and their concerns.”

DISC by Kian Radford and Olin Quigley Daly won the Journalism award. The judges were moved by the “heart-breaking sound bites” from contributors, which revealed a little-seen view of the picturesque town of Newquay.
