There’s been a second Oscars ceremony this year, and this one didn’t take place in sunny LA...

Year 13 Ashfield School media students were invited to Nottingham’s Broadway Cinema for the ‘Ashfield Media Oscars’ - their very own version of the famous ceremony.

It celebrated two years of outstanding achievement and hard work that saw the production of industry-recognised work.

As students lined their cinema seats, a very different type of atmosphere surrounded them compared to that of the last time they shared a room together.

Just two weeks before, an aura of extreme stress, and almost crippling nerves drowned the exam hall in which the class were taking their final media exam.

No-one knew quite what to expect form the event organised by head of media Andrew Wallis.

After he gave a small opening speech, Ellie Topp was presented with the first award for ‘Most Organised.’

Other winners were: Student of the Year Award – James Allsopp; Outstanding Achievement Award – Imogen Renshaw; Best Editing – Aaron Weir; Best Cinematography – Rachel Gascoigne and Faith Roberts; Most Creative – Kirby Hicks; Best Director – Laura Bryan; Student Vote Award – Imogen Renshaw.

The Oscars ceremony was then followed by a goodbye meal at the Pit and Pendulum pub.
