2018 St Patrick's College Media Awards
St Patrick's College is excited to introduce a new format for our Annual Media Awards, where we seek to showcase the talents of our senior students and their incredible short films.
Previously known as SPAM (the St Pat's Award for Media), from 2018 the awards have been renamed.
The award for Best Film each year will be known as the Borell Best Film Award in honour of the Borell family who have a connection to the school stretching back more than a century. Chris Borell (SPC 2010-13) was the first (and to date, only) multiple winner of the SPAM award, having won in 2012 and 2013.
In 2018 we also introduce the Powlett People's Choice Award in honour of the Powlett family who have been long-time supporters of Media Studies at the College (and have also starred in many student films over the years).
The Borell Award will be determined by senior Media Department staff while the Powlett Award will be determined by the viewing public.
