WebComs – Portfolio Competition Winners

I must rely on a Shia Lebouf gif and a cliche when reflecting on some of the work produced as part of the Web and Mobile Communications unit 2016 / 2017.  Choosing the winners was genuinely very difficult. Of the 120 or so portfolio’s produced here, 37 were of a 1st class standard, and 14 were in the 80+ range. There will be a follow-up post to show off some more of this fantastic work.

However, the competition winners must be announced – even if I have been slightly sneaky so I can give out more awards! As a reminder the winners will receive 1 year of hosting and 1 year domain name rental*. So let’s begin! *drum-roll*

“Demonstrates an deft integration of content production and social media engagement. Over the course of the assignment, Marnie received 1,621 views – with 486 on a single day!”

“Clara (and friends!) have produced a genuinely insightful, engaging and charming podcast that tackles a complex and serious issue in an accessible and personable way. #WhyAreYouThereMattDamon?”

“Here Hannah has produced a well structured, visually engaging, and information rich infographic that illustrates not only the issue at hand, but the maturity through which she has approached it”

“Ana went truly above and beyond what was expected for this assignment by producing two well-edited, interesting video interviews with local students and Conservative Chirstchurch MP Christopher Chope”

I cannot reiterate enough how exceptional some of the work was and how difficult it was to decide who won. As a consolation prize I would like to sign-post the following blog as coming very close.

Ella Kenny – Leafy Dreams

Sian Bennet – Dead Popular

Courtney Hayes – Complicationships


Emily Cox – ScrollModels

A visually and conceptually well conceived and crafted website with clear potential for life beyond a university assignment.”


Thanks again to all of my students this year, you were a truly fantastic bunch to teach!
