Escape Studios shortlisted for ‘Best Student Recruitment
Publication’ at The Heist Awards

Escape Studios has been shortlisted for ‘Best Student Recruitment Publication’ at this year’s Heist Awards for its digital-only undergraduate prospectus. With the finals set to take place in July, the Heist Awards celebrates marketing excellence within further and higher education.

Published for the first time in 2021, Escape Studios’ digital prospectus showcased its undergraduate programmes in VFX, Animation and Games. This was the first year the team took a digital-first approach where viewers can watch and view content in real-time. The prospectus also featured artwork created by current students and alumni, bringing the courses to life.

The ‘Best Student Recruitment Publication’ award recognises institutions that have demonstrated sector-leading innovation and creativity whilst also considering EDI, accessibility and sustainability

Since its publication, the prospectus has been one of Escape’s leading publications and has received positive feedback from teachers, advisors and students. 

“The Heist Awards are a real mark of quality in the sector, and I’m delighted that our prospectus has been shortlisted,” said Telia Smith, Director of External Relations. “At Escape Studios creativity and innovation are at the heart of everything we do, and our campaigns are a direct reflection of this. To be shortlisted for a national award is a great achievement for the team.”

The Heist Awards, hosted by Haves Education has been running for over 30 years and this year’s awards ceremony is the first time the event will be held in person since the pandemic. The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on Thursday 14th July 2022 at the Kimpton Clocktower Hotel, Manchester.
