From education to employment

Learning On Screen Awards 2019 now open for entry

The 14th Annual Learning On Screen Awards are now open for submission with a number of categories ranging from Broadcast, Audiovisual essay and Archive, to Student and Promotional Awards.

Since 2005 we have showcased the very best of educational television, recognised the valuable moving image output of the UK’s leading universities, and provided a platform for a generation of upcoming student filmmakers. 

The 2019 Awards will be taking place at the Curzon Soho. There are eight awards categories for national broadcasters such as the BBC and ITV, production companies (such as Aardman and Lambent), museums, charities and college and university staff, as well as five categories for further education and higher education student productions. 

Many of Learning on Screen Student Award winners have gone on to great success within the TV and Film industries, writing and directing major productions for the BBC and Channel 4 and picking up BAFTA awards, RTS awards and student Oscars along the way. 

Last year, over 150 films were submitted, from over 47 universities, 20 production companies and 50 student filmmakers.

We are welcoming anyone eligible for entry to our categories to submit between now and 11th January 2019.

“Winning our Learning on Screen Award in 2008 was just the confidence boost Tom (producer) and myself needed, as it came at time when I had left university and was struggling to seek employment opportunities. It no doubt helped us in securing our first short film grant with the UKFC and set us on our way to a career in the film and television industry.”

 – Lewis Arnold, 2008 winner of the Student Production Award, now multi-award winning director of Broadchurch and Humans
