The National Film and Television School (NFTS) has announced the winner of the first 'The Sue Gibson BSC, Cinematography Award'.

The award recognises a member of NFTS Cinematography Alumni who has advanced the profession of Cinematography in a significant way. Sue Gibson, who passed away last year, was an award-winning NFTS alumna and also the first female president of the British Society of Cinematographers (BSC).

Over 100 NFTS Cinematography alumni submitted votes for the five nominees; Charlotte Bruus Christensen, Natasha Braier, Ula Pontikos, Tom Townend and Vanessa Whyte. Charlotte was named the winner and will presented with the award at a special event.

Commenting on the accolade, she said: "I am absolutely delighted and honoured to have won The Sue Gibson Award, and I want to thank everyone who voted for me. The NFTS has always been – and will continue to be a very special place for me – so to win this award named in memory of Sue Gibson is something that means a great deal, maybe even more so, because I had the privilege to be taught by Sue during my time at NFTS. I truly look forward to collecting it later in the year and thanking everyone personally."

Jon Wardle, NFTS Director, said: "I'm sure Sue would be very proud that Charlotte is the first recipient of this special award. Like Sue she is a fantastic role model and her achievements speak for themselves."
