Judges’ comments:

“Ella Rubeli’s entry was everything the judges were looking for. It was a wonderfully confronting piece of camerawork with a good selection of carious shots. You can see the dedication, enthusiasm and creativity of this young videographer by how well it was researched, composed and shot. It was a pleasure to watch this entrant’s work. It was the standout.”
