Talented digital media enthusiasts, from Woodbridge High School, Woodford Green and Redbridge College, Little Heath, took part and showed off their films, animations, graphic designs and music at the AYV-LIVE! event.

Students from all over London took part at the show held by Adobe Young Voices last month at the BFI Southbank.

Topics brought to light included bullying, addiction prevention and education choices, with Redbridge College students making the shortlist for the global AYV Awards with an animation called Life Choices.

Redbridge College student and Life Choices co-creator Junvenal Maze said: “It’s about how the government and the education system are run in a way that pressures young people into making decisions about their future too early on.”
