Super College students scoop TV Award

A team of talented students at City of Glasgow College have had their talents recognised at this year’s Royal Television Society Scotland 2020 Student Television Awards.

Cameron Thom, Ryan Price and Emma Cunningham won in the short form category for 'Tom Ure: Mental Health and Depression'.

Their beautifully crafted profile enabled actor Tom Urie (BBC River City’s Big Bob) to tell the story of how he faced up to and overcame his depression.

A further three teams of students from the college were also shortlisted in comedy and entertainment, factual and short form.

James Wilson, Curriculum Head for Broadcasting at City of Glasgow College, and Chair of RTS Scotland Student Television Awards, said:

“Our industry depends upon the development of young people, their skill growing with their confidence under the guidance of their tutors and mentors. I am so proud of our students and the staff who helped them develop their creativity and technical expertise. Emma, Ryan and Cameron did really well to win the short form category, effectively showcasing their many skills and highlighting an important social issue all in less than five minutes."

The RTS Student Television Awards celebrate the best audiovisual work created by students at undergraduate and postgraduate level in ten categories across animation, comedy & entertainment, drama, short form, factual, production design, editing, sound, camera, and writing.
