Winning Film Competition Entry - Congratulations Simon Havas

The results were announced and amazingly not only did Simon win the High School category outright, he also won the Peopleīs Choice category with the largest number of views.

So far his film has been viewed 1716 times. More times, in fact, than any of the films in the open category.

This is a remarkable achievement for a teenagerīs very first film and it was an honour for Simon to win against such outstanding competition.

The film has an important message to raise awareness for the Sea's crucial protection and sustainability.
Please go and have a look. We are keen to support our student film makers in getting their films out to the world!

A special word of thanks to the staff at Western Springs College, particularly Deb Thompson and her Media Studies class, for encouraging Simon to take part.
