The Learning on Screen awards ceremony took place on Thursday 23 April 2015 at London’s BFI Southbank. The ceremony was a great opportunity to network with industry and educational professionals, and see an amazing amount of talent on the big screen. All nominated entries were showcased and the winners announced during the ceremony. A networking reception followed the ceremony.
Award-winning broadcaster and journalist Samira Ahmed gave a guest speech and helped present the awards. Samira presents BBC1’s Newswatch and Radio 4’s Front Row and has a special interest in the link between popular culture, politics and social change. Samira has also made documentary films herself, and won the Stonewall Broadcast of the Year award for her film about so-called “corrective” rape in South Africa.
Learning on Screen is the only UK awards celebrating media production in learning, teaching and research, now in its eleventh year.
Each year, broadcasters, production companies, education institutions, museums, publishers, charities, libraries, students and any other organisation or individual producing educational media get the chance to enter Learning on Screen.
Entries are made in a variety of categories, including broadcast programmes, non-broadcast delivery, multimedia content and student productions. This year new student award categories were introduced to Learning on Screen to celebrate productions from College HE and FE students.
The College HE award was announced at a special ceremony at the Association of Colleges annual HE conference on 4 March 2015 at the Russell Hotel London. All other winners were announced at the ceremony at the BFI.
