    THEMES

    HAYCLIFFE SCHOOL, Bradford, West Yorkshire
    "We have a problem!!!"

      We travel through time and space to where fiction meets reality. Our epic adventure starts with a familiar creature who is looking to make contact with his family. From ring tones to surfing the net surely he can make a connection, or will he get left behind. Houston we have a problem.

    LAWNSWOOD SCHOOL, Leeds, West Yorkshire
    "Always Respect ..."

      It was 22nd April, 1993. It was the first racial attack the British population really took notice of. It was the day Stephen Lawrence was murdered. It shook the country and from that moment it changed us all. Brutal murder, police corruption, a family’s tragedy. Who took notice? We did! This is for you. Never forget. Always respect . . . Stephen Lawrence.

    RAWLETT COMMUNITY SPORTS COLLEGE, Tamworth, Staffordshire
    "What Lies Within?"

      After Prometheus' theft of the gift of fire, Zeus was angry and ordered the creation of the first women, Pandora, as part of the punishment of mankind. Against all warning, Prometheus' brother, married Pandora. Zeus gave Pandora a box that must never be opened as a wedding present. He also gave her curiosity. Can she fight temptation despite the dangers?

    SETTLE COLLEGE, Settle, North Yorkshire
    "Eye Spy"

      Eye Spy explores the world of CCTV and reignites the debate on human privacy laws and asks the question, "should Big Brother always be watching over us?" The knowledge that we are being watched causes us all to question how we would naturally act and how it is perceived we should act when conforming to societies expectations.

    THE CATHEDRAL SCHOOL WAKEFIELD’S SCHOOL OF THE ARTS, Wakefield, West Yorkshire
    "Virus"

      Science-fiction meets reality... The future survival of humankind lies in the hands of scientists. What happens when society is threatened by a deadly virus? It’s a thrilling, adrenaline-fuelled race against the clock: can a cure be found in time to save humanity and planet earth?

    THE GRAMMAR SCHOOL AT LEEDS, Leeds, West Yorkshire
    "Enviro-mental"

      We must change the way we think and act towards our planet. Please think global, act local to save the earth for our future. As “Only after the last tree has been cut down Only after the last fish has been caught Only after the last river has been poisoned Only then will you find money cannot be eaten”.

    THORNTON GRAMMAR SCHOOL, Bradford, West Yorkshire
    "STALEMATE"

      Our piece is an abstract interpretation of what we deem an innocent game. Chess, is it simple or complex? Are there hidden agendas? Is it conformity, conflict, betrayal, fear? Is it black versus white, rook versus knight, and who really is the strongest piece? Can we learn to love our differences? Will anybody win, or will it end in stalemate?
