How can we help
Student Awards

Supported by Sony, the Wex Photo Video Students Awards are back. Open to any degree or BTEC (or Scottish equivalent) students across both filmmaking and photographic disciplines within the UK, the student awards continue to offer opportunities to a vast array of creatives.

Developed with lecturer Lei Cox from Napier University and the Wex Business Team at Wex Photo Video with support from Sony, this year's category is landscapes. We hope this will allow both video creators and photographers alike the opportunity to showcase their talent.
