A student has been recognised in the Royal Television Society’s Student Television Awards.

Edinburgh College of Art’s Stuart Edwards was presented with a camerawork award in the postgraduate craft skills category.

Stuart won the award for his short film ‘A Wee Night In’.

The documentary tells the story of 95-year-old Chrissy from Glasgow and her 91-year old boyfriend Bill.

The winning films will be broadcast on the Sky Arts channel at 7pm on 19 June along with highlights of the awards ceremony.

The winners were announced at a ceremony hosted by comedian Romesh Ranganathan on Friday 5 June at the BFI Southbank.


Students competed against institutions from across the UK and Ireland.

Chaired by Stuart Murphy, Director, Sky Entertainment Channels, the awards celebrate the best in student television.

The Undergraduate and Postgraduate Awards are judged in five categories: animation, comedy and entertainment, drama, factual and open - for films that are a maximum of three minutes in length.

This was an incredibly competitive category across all the genres but the winner was felt to have used the camera with great wit and confidence, allowing the story and characters to unfold with elegant pace and to capture the beauty of an intimate world.
