After the success of the  Inaugural Jimmy Nesbitt Creativity Award 2018, BYT and Jimmy has joined forces once more to give 1 more lucky young person the prize of a life time.

As part of our huge summer programme, we are giving the young people attending the BYT Actor’s Studio 2019 the chance to win a day on set with our much loved patron, Jimmy Nesbitt this Autumn. 

2018 Creativity Award winner, Ben Wallis, age 17 said, ‘I would tell everyone to join the BYT Actor’s  Studio if they get the chance. It was just the most unforgettable week and  I have made amazing friends. It has genuinely changed my life because. The experience that week has acted as the fire to ignite what will  hopefully be a lifelong career in all aspects of the creative arts.  We used to be gutted every day when we had to go home  it was that good!’

All members of the BYT Actor’s Studio 2019 will have the chance to win The Jimmy Nesbitt Creativity Award which includes a one-day visit to join the renowned local actor on the set of one of his forthcoming projects next year.

“The person judged to be the most creative across the week will get the rare opportunity to spend a day on set with me in one of my forthcoming projects. The winner will experience all that goes on on a professional film set, both in front of and behind the cameras – and I am sure we will have lots of craic on the day too,” Jimmy added.

This is a prize not to be  missed!
