Event: BAFTA Scotland New Talent AwardsDate: Thursday 14 April 2016Venue: Drygate Brewery, GlasgowHost: Muriel GrayBAFTA/Andy Buchanan

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Scotland has today announced the winners of the BAFTA Scotland New Talent Awards at a glittering ceremony held at Drygate, Glasgow. Hosted by Muriel Gray for the fifth year, the event honoured new work made by students and emerging practitioners, highlighting the bright future of Scotland’s moving image industries.

Every year, BAFTA Scotland celebrates and rewards the diverse array of up-and-coming talent working within Scotland’s creative industries. The BAFTA Scotland New Talent Awards 2016 featured 36 nominees across 12 categories from across the country. Judging panels made up of industry professionals considered hundreds of entries to decide the shortlist and winners for each.

Among this year’s winners was 24-year-old Sarah Miele, who took home the Acting Performance Female award for her performance in Grimm Street, in which she played a character with muscular dystrophy. The Acting Performance Male award, supported by The Woven Thread, was then clinched by 23-year-old Daniel Cameron for his role in I Am Me, in which he played a character with autism.

There was a double win for Michal Wdowiak, who scooped the Editor and Writer awards for his work on Yogi, a film he wrote for his final year in college.

There was a surprise guest presenter on the evening, as Trainspotting director, Danny Boyle, presented Kris Kubik the prestigious Best New Work award - the final prize of the night, billed as a best-of-the-best award, as he was selected from the 12 other category winners who were judged by a special panel for additional recognition. Earlier in the evening, Kris won the Camera/Photography, supported by Progressive, award for his work, Dipper from the Water of Leith.

Other awards went to: The Armadillo and the Earwig for Animation; Atzi Muramatsu for Composer; Cara Roxburgh for Design; Hula for Drama; Paperclip for Entertainment; The Third Dad for Factual; Gaby Yánez for Sound.

Muriel Gray, ceremony host, said:

“This is now my fifth year hosting the BAFTA Scotland New Talent Awards and every year I am blown away by the pool of new talent in Scotland. I wish all winners the best of luck in their future careers.”

Jude MacLaverty, Director of BAFTA Scotland, said:

“The BAFTA Scotland New Talent Awards is dedicated to encouraging and nurturing up-and-coming talent in Scotland and, once again, we’ve seen there is no shortage of this. Tonight we applauded and celebrated some fantastic emerging talent and congratulations to our very worthy winners.”
