Creativity at Activate Learning – students win awardsBy Activate Learning Dec 28, 2013 6:27PM UTC
We love a good student success story here so I am pleased to bring you news of one alumni’s and three current student’s creative achievement.
Past student, visiting speaker and friend of the Level 3 Photography and Digital Imaging course, Mark O’Neill, has taken first prize in the International Light Painting Award.
The International Light Painting Award celebrates creative use of light in imaging, and only photos which are actively painted with artificial light are accepted. This includes accentuation and illumination of landscapes, architecture or persons. The winning images show a wide range of concepts, imagination and great technical skill.
Mark’s striking and original image (see below) beat a high standard of competition to win a top of the range full-frame DSLR camera.
With such beautiful images we’re sure Mark will continue to blaze a trail throughout the world of photography and creative arts. Well done Mark!

Three of our Level 3 Media students recently worked with a local group to produce a video to promote and support their cause. Left to Right Berkshire is a campaign run by a group of local 16-17 year olds whose mission is to change the law through educating people about emotional child neglect.
The video was shot to a very tight deadline in the College’s TV studio.
“The production was fun and energetic, with lots of enthusiasm. We filmed in the College TV studio and the staff allowed us to film until 8pm. The shoot went smoothly, although not without some disruptions, but in the end everyone was really happy with the final product,” noted Silva Chege, the director and friend of Noor from Left to Right Berkshire, who personally commissioned the video.
The video obviously impressed as it helped Left to Right Berkshire win the Social Action Project Award at The National Citizen Service Autumn 2013 Graduation. Well done to all involved!
