About the 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. In recent years we have revised our awards categories to reflect the latest developments in educational film and media, with new awards for audiovisual essays, student use of archive material and cutting-edge online resources. Sponsor the Learning on Screen Awards 2019 and be a part of this unique celebration of UK talent and innovation.

Previous Winners of Student Awards

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

“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”.

Emily Morgan, 2013 winner of the Student Production Postgraduate Award, now BAFTA winning producer of I Am Not A Witch (2017)

David Winstone, 2012 winner of the Student Production Undergraduate & FE Award went on to win a Student Oscar and now directs BAFTA nominated River City for the BBC.

“I first met Jon Wardle (director of The National Film and Television School) at the Learning on Screen Awards. He saw my film For Elsie, which won the award for best Undergraduate film. After that meeting I was offered a scholarship to attend the NFTS, which has led to my current work in television on shows River City and Hard Sun”.
