End of YearSome of the brightest new talent in film, photography, digital animation, architecture, landscape and more showcase their work at the University of Greenwich next week.

The departments of Creative Professions & Digital Arts (CPDA) and Architecture & Landscape open their end-of-year undergraduate shows at the university's Stockwell Street building on Thursday 15 June.

One of the highlights of the Architecture and Landscape show is always the 'practice night', where architecture companies meet the students and see their work.

"This is a big opportunity for our students to have their work seen by possible employers," says Nic Clear, Head of Architecture & Landscape. "It is one of the most exciting events of the year and is what our students have been working towards."

The Architecture & Landscape show is part of the London Festival of Architecture and features work from first year to Master's level. There is also an open day and tour of the building taking place on Saturday 1 July (11am-4pm).

A full day of screenings by final year students gets the CPDA show underway before a TV and film awards ceremony honours the best of this year's work. Categories include: BFI Future Film Award for Best Drama, Best Documentary, Best Cinematography, and Outstanding Talent and Diversity. 

The awards are sponsored by Betty, Keshet, Zeiss, Rycote, Weekend, Envy, Edinburgh Talent International Television Schemes Festival, Endemol Shine, FMUK, and London Live.

Both shows run until Sunday 2 July and will share space across Stockwell Street Building on both the ground floor and the first floor studios.

CPDA students have won a number of awards to add to their work portfolio as they prepare to enter some exciting professions.
