Media students film the Active Westminster Awards

For the sixth year running, CWC’s students created the video content for the Active Westminster Awards at the Lord’s Cricket Ground and filmed the event live on the night. 

The Active Westminster Awards recognise those who change lives through their outstanding contribution to sport and physical activity. The awards are a chance to highlight the hard work of inspiring people and organisations across Westminster, with awards being given out in 10 different categories. 

Now in its ninth year, the ceremony was also attended by special guests; 6 time Olympian and winner of a gold medal at the 1984 Olympics, Tessa Sanderson, CBE and Commonwealth multiple medallist at table tennis and a Champions of the Future ambassador, Tin-Tin Ho.

Before beginning the project, students received advice and tips from sports presenter David Garrido who is one of the UK’s most recognisable TV sports presenters.

Their tutor James Hodges said, 'I'm very proud of the amount of effort the students put into this project each year. The standard of the videos that they produce gets better and better. The learners did particularly well filming the live event as they were using new equipment that they hadn't used before and they worked to a near-professional standard.'
