Best Ambassador Award Winners
The Best Ambassador award left us with another tough decision – so we’ve selected 3 of our Best Ambassadors and we are splitting the award 3 ways. So congratulations to our winners:
Kim Hickey (£250) - Kim gave an outstanding contribution to workshops! Kim volunteered at all of the Diversity Films workshops, she championed the project and workshops via Twitter and Facebook, and even ran a workshop at the Glasgow Women’s Library. Thank you Kim for going above and beyond!
Darren Dowling (£250) - Darren championed the project in several ways including the Northern Lights Information Video that he then posted on different networks. He has also been an active community, giving feedback and encouragement to other submitters, and generally keeping us on our toes! Thank you, Darren!
Norman Bissell (£250) - Last but certainly not least, Norman has been a huge contributor. Norman arranged a workshop in Luing and got the people of his community involved in Northern Lights, in person and online. Congratulations, Norman!
Best Workshop Award Winners
After much deliberation, it was much too difficult to pick just one workshop! To make it fair to all workshop submissions, we have decided to split the award 50/50 between one Group Workshop and one Pop-up Workshop.
The winners are…
Group workshop: Graham Bell - I Can’t Remember My Name
This workshop submission blew us away with its message of courage, hope, and love. After his stroke, Graham Bell forgot how to do the simplest things – but he has put together this amazing video about his appreciation for life. Congratulations, Graham!
Pop-Up Workshop: Calum Maclean - At The Falls
Calum Maclean showed us what he could see: the changing landscape. As the water around the falls swelled, he took a wee swim. Calum’s Scotland is wild and free, and we thank him for sharing it with us in all its beauty, hope, and fun. Well done, Calum!
