Thumb-Stopping Moments

Winners announced

The judges have chosen and we can now officially announce the three prize winners.

The votes have been cast and the winners have been chosen. With submissions numbering in the triple digits, it wasn’t easy for the judges to choose the best film entered into the competition, but eventually they were able to pick the top three submissions. See the winners of the Thumb-Stopping Moments short film competition below.

1st prize

The judges chose this film by Ben Crabb as the winning submission.

2nd prize

This film by Digital Film and Television students studying at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland was awarded second place.

3rd prize

Benjamin Bee submitted this film about the life of a balloon which was chosen for 3rd place.

Highly commended

While these three videos did not receive a prize, we think they deserve a shout-out for their original and unique ideas.


Thanks again to everyone who entered their films into the competition.
