As our Amateur Filmmaker of the Year competition draws to a close we reveal the winner of the final round, and reveal this years overall winner

TAGS:

The theme for the final round of AFOY was ‘Love’ and, as usual, the interpretation of that theme was quite varied. Overall we were looking for a combination of interpreting the theme, excellent visual and audio technique, as well as a compelling video that held our interest.

Our three judges have awarded points to their favourite 10 videos, and when teh points are added up, the winner is Gavin John, for his video Always and Forever.

For first prize Gavin wins a Canon XC10 (with 128GB CFast card and reader), worth £1999.99. You can read our full review of the Canon XC10 here.

The judges had a hard time deciding the winner, as the video in second place was the excellent Picture House, by Daniel Bradshaw. As runner up Daniel wins a Canon Legria Mini X, worth £329.99

Here are the overall results from Round Three

Always and Forever – Gavin John 310
Picture House – Daniel Bradshaw 240
