    BUTTERSHAW BUSINESS AND ENTERPRISE COLLEGE, Bradford, West Yorkshire
    "Automata"

      As we hurtle into the age of the machine, we must finally take responsibility for creating a monster! Its intelligence has now surpassed our own, making it the most formidable enemy that the human race has ever encountered. Its tyrannical need to annihilate mankind is surely too powerful to withstand...This is man versus machine!

    THE CATHEDRAL SCHOOL WAKEFIELD'S SCHOOL OF THE ARTS, Wakefield, West Yorkshire
    "Human Emotion"

      How far would a dictator go to keep his subjects under control? In a state ruled by fear and terror surely revolt is inevitable. But what if humans could be stopped from feeling? Without love, anger or sorrow what would civilisation have left? Can the people really be suppressed or is human emotion too strong a force to contain?

    HORNSEA SCHOOL AND LANGUAGE COLLEGE, Hornsea, East Yorkshire
    "Solid as a Rock"

      Legend tells of a giant's rage which creates tourist attraction Brimham Rocks. It also speaks of a young couple whose families forbid their relationship. They choose to die in love and jump off the rocks rather than face a lifetime apart. Happily the legend's fairies intervene to save them and persuade the parents to recognise their true love.

    KESTEVEN AND GRANTHAM GIRLS' SCHOOL, Grantham, Lincolnshire
    "1984"

      Can two lovers hide themselves from the eye of Big Brother? Will they be able to withstand The Party or will they, like so many before them, be unable to resist? George Orwell's dystopian vision of the future focuses on the darker side of human nature and examines what we'll do to preserve our own existence.

    PETERHEAD ACADEMY, Peterhead, Aberdeenshire
    "Crazy In Love"

      Come on in, welcome to our mad house. Here you will discover allsorts: schizophrenics, arsonists and insomniacs to name a few. Society has deemed these troubled souls unsafe and shut them away.

This, unbeknownst to her, shapes her life for better and worse.

    ST PAUL'S CATHOLIC SCHOOL, Leicester
    "The Immortal Clockwork"

      Based on Antony Burgess's 'A Clockwork Orange', our charismatic and delinquent piece of art is based on a repressive, totalitarian super-State. In our society ordinary citizens have fallen into a passive stupor of complacency. Blind to the insidious growth of a rampant violent youth culture.
