UNIVERSITY NEWS LAST UPDATED : 07 MAY 2020
Acting student Tomisin Ajani has been selected as a finalist in the Spotlight Prize, which is an annual competition where the best drama school graduates from across the UK and Ireland compete to perform in front of an exclusive industry panel.
Tomisin, who is in the final year of his studies, will be potentially launching his career to an audience of influential industry professionals, such as agencies and casting directors. He found he had made the final 20 on Wednesday 6 May.
As part of the Spotlight Prize process, drama schools and institutions are invited to nominate their best students to send in a self-tape audition. Tomisin made the short film ‘Hamster’ as part of his course and his Course Director Danièle Sanderson put him forward for the competition based on that.
Tomisin said: “I’m very excited about being selected as a finalist. I feel blessed and I just want the day to come, so I can do RBC proud. The Spotlight Prize is a great opportunity for any actor, as it’s a chance to showcase your work to industry professionals. Hopefully I'll get signed to an agency or a casting director will take interest in me, but I know that it's an opportunity to be seen, which sounds good to me.”
