Celebrating Success: MFL Pop Video & Speaking Competitions Regional Finals

Wednesday, 29 June, 2016 - 12:00 to 16:30
South West
Wills Hall Conference Centre, University of Bristol

We are delighted to announce that our big annual Celebrating Success Event will take place on Wednesday 29th June at Wills Hall Conference Centre, University of Bristol this year.

The event will run in two parts:

MFL Speaking Competition Regional Final -

All winners & runners-up from three sub-regional finals in Barnstaple, Swindon and Bath are invited to compete. Students may either improve the presentation that they delivered in March or make an entirely new presentation. Creativity, imagination and an element of drama will be highly commended! The topics are the same as for sub-regional finals and are available in the downloadable competition flyer (see below).

Students will be judged on presentation as well as language skills (spontaneity, fluency, accent, interest, range of language and originality) by a panel of judges.

Cash prizes will be given to winners (£50) & runners-up (£25).

Deadline for registrations: Friday 27th May. To register, please complete the downloadable registration form (see below) and e-mail it to:

Pop Video Competition Award Ceremony -

Nine nominated videos will compete for the 'Winner 2016' award. The winners in each category, including the 'Online Viewers' Award', will be announced in the Oscar-style ceremony.

Cash prizes will be given to winners (£100) & runners-up (£50).

And we are hoping to have a live performance by one of the Pop Video winners from previous years again!!

Nominees will be notified by the end of May.

The voting poll for the 'Online Viewers' Award' will open after the closing date for four weeks and nominees will be notified 10 days prior to the event.


We are planning to start the event around 12 pm and finish by 4.30 pm.

The programme will be available in early June.
