Monica McWilliams recently presented a number of awards to Visual Communication students at the University of Ulster's final year show.
The Commission set up this awards scheme to encourage arts students to express their views on human rights in Northern Ireland.
We want to encourage creative ways of stimulating thinking and debate about human rights, and we are delighted by the quality of the entries we received for this year's competition. The students spent a considerable period of time researching their themes and they deserve great praise for producing such an outstanding series of films.
First prize went to Robbie Graham - visually stunning, his film explores freedom of thought and expression. Set in the future, it depicts Belfast as a 'surveillance society'.
Other awards were presented to - Connie Hunter (second prize) and Luke Godson (third prize). Mike Hesketh, Craig Hunter and Daniel McGarrigle were highly commended.
