    "Transformation of Communication – Valuing the Written Word"

      The 20th century crafted dramatic technological advances. A time, when words danced across pages - read with passion. We move swiftly through the audio-video years as younger generations become accomplished users of modern technology. Facebook - a tool to alter your true self, write what you would not dare to say face-to-face. Empowered to hurt, manipulate, demoralise and destroy.

    BOURNEMOUTH SCHOOL FOR GIRLS, Bournemouth, Dorset
    "The Pursuit of Happiness"

      'Bournemouth happiest town in UK' BBC News Nov, 2010. The stimulus for our dance arose from this article regarding what influences people's state of 'happiness'. Our dance is a depiction of modern society and its obsessive compulsion to achieve instant success through fortune and celebrity status. It exposes the ugly side of fame in our 'pursuit of happiness'.

    CORFE HILLS SCHOOL, Poole, Dorset
    "This Town Ain't Big Enough For the Both of Us"

      There once was a young lady from Tennessee
      Who was beautiful, as you'll see…
      Along came a guy from the West,
      Upon first look, became obsessed
      And dreamt what their love could be.
      From the Outlaws, villagers did flee,
      She lured them in seductively,
      She's hopeless in love,
      When push came to shove,
      They're as happy as ever could be.

    GLENMOOR AND WINTON EDUCATIONAL TRUST, Bournemouth, Dorset
    "The Oil Spill"

      The explosion aboard the Deepwater Horizon rig in April 2010 began a devastating spill which leaked millions of barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico – the largest spill in American history. The leak took three months to be closed off, with devastating effects on beaches and wildlife that'll cast a gloomy cloud over the Gulf region for many decades.

    THE GRANGE SCHOOL, Christchurch, Dorset
    "Image is Everything"

      Body image is how you perceive your physical body and how you feel others perceive it. It is formed out of every experience you have ever had and all of the people around you - parents, catwalks, role models, media, and peers. These experiences and influences can sometimes be too much for one person to handle.

    JOHN MADEJSKI ACADEMY, Reading, Berkshire
    "The Good, The Bad, and the Strange"

      A madcap professor is tinkering with his latest invention – a time machine – but failing to make it work he throws down his tools and gives up. The time machine suddenly bursts to life and develops a magical split personality showing us the good and the bad of years gone by and years to come.

    LIPSON COMMUNITY COLLEGE, Plymouth, Devon
    "Wearing the dead"

      When does a soldier forget who he is and do his job? When does he leave his family and join a troop? How far will he go? Where is the line? How can you stop yourself from crossing it? Is it even possible?
      When does a boy become a man?
      Why are our children suffering because of our mistakes?

    MILTON ABBEY SCHOOL, Blandford Forum, Dorset
    "Life is a Balancing Act"

      To achieve some sort of contentment in life we all need to feel that our basic human rights are being upheld. If we are oppressed or denied freedom then we fight against it. Yet can anarchy reign? With rights comes responsibilities and we have to look out for each other. There must be a balance.

    OAKMEAD COLLEGE OF TECHNOLOGY, Bournemouth, Dorset

Will Annie succeed in her quest to reunite her family or has innocent Alice gone forever?

    ST EDWARD'S RC CE VA SCHOOL, Poole, Dorset
    "Naturally bittersweet"

      Nature should always be perceived as something beautiful and pure. However it can be deceiving and the natural beauty can be taken over by the dominance of human evil. Our piece follows the journey of the poppy and how humans remove it's purity by producing opium and heroin from the seeds. Maybe nature's beauty isn't so true after all.

    ST PETER'S CATHOLIC SCHOOL, Bournemouth, Dorset
    "Critics, Schemes and Cooking Up Dreams"

      Fresh out of catering college, Eliza returns home to find the family restaurant in ruins and her Father about to sign it over to a rival restaurateur. With 2 weeks until the bank forecloses, she knows a good review is the only thing that can save it.
