Christchurch students take away the prizes in the Eureka! Video Awards

The inaugural Eureka! Video Awards proved to be a great success for students from Christ's College, Christchurch and Cobham Intermediate, also Christchurch.

One of our Judges, Weibke Finkler who teaches film making at the Otago University School of Science Communication was so impressed by the quality of the top two entries that she said they showed more competence in some areas than first attempts she has seen from post-grad students at the film school.
