A budding filmmaker from Norwich University of the Arts (NUA) has won this year's Bishop's Art Prize.

The short film by NUA MA Moving Image and Sound student Julian Hand presents the Neolithic Callanish Stones on the Isle of Lewis as a beacon 'illuminating humanity's cultural and spiritual past, symbolically connecting the earth and sky'.

Work by Textile Design student Zoe Bell and Fine Art student Averil Cooper won joint second prizes, with third prize being awarded to Fine Art student Jenni Ahrens.

The Bishop's Art Prize is an annual competition open to final year students at NUA who are studying for either an undergraduate or postgraduate degree. Students are invited to create works in response to a brief set by the Bishop of Norwich that explore a theme. This year's theme was light in the darkness.

The Bishop's Art Prize exhibition features the work of 23 shortlisted students and is open to the public until June 14 at The Hostry at Norwich Cathedral. Admission is free.
