 (Last year's excitement...)

GHS pupils win our Short Film competition 2021!


Year 10 girls Katie Shopland and Rebecca Pugsley

from Guildford High School made the winning entry

to the GTA's first Short Film competition for

Guildford Schools - which attracted 13 entries by

25 students from 3 schools.

Prizes donated by Freiburg were presented to

them by the Mayor of Guildford, Cllr Marsha Moseley,

at the GTA Christmas Market in the Guildhall on

28 November 2021.

with the Mayor and their prizes.


The subject was "Guildford - my town/meine Stadt" and the brief to show, in 2 minutes and in English or German, their Guildford, any aspect of life in the town and borough for the benefit of people in Freiburg.

The judges, who included the Mayor, Professor Phil Powrie of University of Surrey and Nick Bale, Leader of Guildford Town Guides, said: "This film was easy to watch.  It had broad coverage of different aspects of Guildford and was clear and enthusiastic. The quality of the German was both sophisticated and accurate and was supported by subtitles. We are unanimous in awarding this film First Prize and conclude it was the best advertisement for Guildford of all the films entered in the competition."
