A keen sportsman, twenty one year old Oliver Loe won the top award in the Sport category for his report on Footgolf, a combination of the sports of football and golf that is becoming popular in Nottingham. One of the highlights was a memorable hole in one.

Fellow student Louis Antonio (21) was awarded a special prize for the best tweet of the night in a competition open to all students attending the ceremony.

The winning students from Nottingham Trent University are third year students studying on an innovative course linked to Notts TV.  As part of their course, they work as interns producing news material and working on the live news programme broadcast on weekday nights on the city station.

The Midlands Media Student Awards were organised by the Birmingham Press Club. Established in 1865, it’s the oldest Press Club in the world with more than 350 members, including journalists from newspapers, magazines, television, radio and online.

The student awards were launched to recognise the talent of the next generation of journalists.

They attracted more than 110 entries from media students throughout the East and West Midlands and the judging panel was led by Sky News Managing Editor Peter Lowe.

The winning students were awarded internships with media companies based in the Midlands.
