Competition Finalists Deliver the Metrolink Message ( Published: 25/11/2015)

The Media Leaders, an extra-curricular student group at Whalley Range 11-18 High School, reached the final of a competition to create a new advert for the Manchester Metrolink Network.

The competition, organised by Transport For Greater Manchester in conjunction with the Ucreate project, involved the planning and development of a one minute advertisement looking at the themes of ‘anti-social behaviour’ and ‘fare evasion’. The Whalley Range students brainstormed, storyboarded, scripted and shot their advert over the course of the first half-term of the school year.

The awards ceremony took place at the fantastic new HOME theatre complex, the replacement for the Manchester Cornerhouse. The Whalley Range finalists were nominated for the ‘artistic merit’ award and their work was showcased to a large audience in one of the new custom built cinemas.

Mr Corney, group leader, was thoroughly impressed with the work produced by the students:

The students worked extremely hard on making sure the advert we entered was creative and professional. The split-screen idea worked incredibly well and they all contributed to making a very impressive video.

We’d like to congratulate the winners of the competition, Fairfield High School for Girls and Oasis Academy Limeside, alongside thanking the organisers of the competition for inviting us to take part.
