Stroud Community TV Awards 2013: winners announced
Philip Booth, co-founder of the project and indeed this blog, writes:
Stroud Community TV is a way of celebrating Stroud and the Five Valleys, sharing inspiring stories and building a greater sense of identity. It is run entirely by volunteers. We like to tell good news stories about the projects and events in Stroud and encourage more of those - but it is also about showcasing the creative talent here, nurturing more, supporting local organisations and businesses and giving a voice to those less often heard."
Members of the public suggested nominations for their best 2013 films and now they have been voted on by a team of judges including Neil Carmichael MP, Green Mayor of Stroud Amanda Moriarty, Stroud Life's Victoria Temple, Eastenders actor Sean Gleason, Chair of Stroud District Council Community Committee Cllr June Cordwell and more.
The results which include a Transition film of the Fix It For Free cafes, Applewood at Cashes Green and more are available at: http://stroudcommunity.tv/awards-2013/
It is great to see so much interest in the project. We'd love to hear from more filmmakers. amateur or professional, who would be interested in filming local events and projects. Next year we hope to introduce a new category of 'Green' films.
