Sandy Honca

Barton Peveril Sixth Form College student Sandy Honca has won the Barney Oram Creativity Award in the MediaMagazine Production Competition 2021. Honca won the award for their short video ‘What is Lockdown?’ which explored the lockdowns the world has faced over the past year.

The competition showcases the best work from students around the country, giving students the opportunity to explore the COVID-19-induced lockdowns and their experiences of them creatively.

Sandy Honca received the Barney Oram Creativity Award for their work, which the student created for the competition after learning about it through their teacher at the College. Barney was a teacher of Media and Film Studies for many years at Long Road Sixth Form College, and was passionate about film and developing his students’ creativity and film-making skills. The award in his name has been judged by two of his colleagues at Long Road, Tom Woodcock and Andrea Joyce.

Honca wishes to pursue Film Production after completing their studies at the College. 

“I am grateful for this experience”

Speaking on winning the award, the Barton Peveril student said:

“I am very proud and happy to have been able to win the Barney Oram creativity award. But without the support of my family, friends and college – I wouldn’t be able to see the positives to lockdown. The good of this film wouldn’t really exist without them. I am grateful for this experience and award, and hope to create more films in the future.”
