Film Award For Fixers
Fixers is celebrating after a collection of films produced by the team in the southern region made the final cut at a prestigious awards ceremony.
Four films, on topics ranging from domestic abuse to life as a young refugee, have won Fixers a Royal Television Society Award.
The films achieved the accolade in the Best Non-Broadcast Production category.
The prize was presented to the Fixers team in front of an audience of around 200 people at an event at The Guildhall in Winchester on Friday 21st February.
‘It’s great that Fixers has been recognised by the Royal Television Society for the work we are doing to give young people a positive voice in society,’ says Margo Horsley, Chief Executive of PSBT – the trust behind Fixers.
‘It is a prestigious award and one we hold proudly on behalf of Fixers everywhere.
‘Just last week a high profile Demos report called for a new positive narrative around young people,’ adds Margo.
‘This award shows again that we are already providing the media with the strong, good quality stories they need to provide positive coverage.’
Take a look at the Fixers films which together won a Royal Television Society Southern Award:
Abdulkareem Musa Adam’s Seeking Asylum Fix
Abi Hocking’s Dyspraxia Fix
