The finalists have been announced for the Bill Vinten GTC University Award. The competition focusses on undergraduates' use of camera skills to enhance the content of films.

The six on the shortlist are:

Adam Grasso, Director of Photography, 'S.O.S. (for the artist Femme)'
Vince Knight, Director of Photography, 'The Domestic Lives of Mollusks'
Jacob Leese, Camera Operator, 'Scarlet'
Thomas McKie, Director of Photography, 'The Last Fisherman'
Daniel O'Flaherty, Director of Photography, 'Sunday Dinner at the Morgans'
Thomas Reed, Director of Photography, 'Flypaper'

Following the announcement of the winners, the top three camera operators will work with the BBC's 'Doctors' production team and Lion Television. They will also receive trophies and membership of the GTC.
"While dramas feature in the shortlist, many graduates will work in other fields like news and documentaries so it is important to emphasise the skills needed in these areas too," explains competition director, Alan Duxbury.
The GTC said entries from universities increased by over a third this year. The institution with the highest scoring portfolio from the films submitted by their undergraduates will win the prestigious Bill Vinten GTC University Trophy.

The universities competing for the Bill Vinten GTC University Trophy are:

Birmingham City University
Bournemouth University
Buckinghamshire New University
Cambridge School of Art, Anglia Ruskin University
Edge Hill University
Kingston University, Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing
Northern Film School, Leeds Metropolitan University
Southbank University
Staffordshire University, Media (Film) Production Course
University for the Creative Arts

The Awards will be presented at the University of York's Heslington Studios on October 22, 2014.
