A student from The University of Sheffield has scooped a prize at the Royal Television Society Student Television Awards 2016.

Kin Hang Lee won the Undergraduate News award, for ‘Sexabled’ - which judges described as ‘a powerful film about an under-reported issue. With high production values, this film tackled a challenging subject in a sensitive and accomplished way.’

The Royal Television Society is Britain’s leading forum for television and related media. Chaired by Philip Edgar-Jones, Director of Sky Arts, the annual Undergraduate and Postgraduate Awards celebrates the very best in student television and is judged in six categories – Animation, Comedy & Entertainment, Drama, Factual, News and Open.

A team from University of Sheffield - ICT, James Webb, Reece Ronan, Lauren Griggs and Curtis Mahony - also received a nomination for the Undergraduate Comedy & Entertainment award.

The winners were announced at a ceremony last week, at the BFI Southbank. The nominated and winning films will be available to watch on Sky Arts On Demand later this year.
