An animation featuring a donkey named Don was among the winners at this year's Student Video Awards, as the CBC and the Vancouver Sun honoured talented young filmmakers across the province.

More than 100 entries were submitted by students aged 12 to 17 years old in the third annual Student Video Awards, competing for $15,000 worth of training at Vancouver Film School.

Students submitted entries in six different categories - Animation, Narrative, Public Service Announcement, Documentary, Music Video and Experimental.

For the third year in a row, Heritage Christian Online School student Marcus Miller won a prize, this time in the Animated category, with his entry Meeting Your Maker.

The film tells the story of Don the donkey trying to sort out his confusion when his grandfather reveals his plans to go meet his maker.

In the Narrative category, the winner was Ink, a story by Young Lee at Port Moody Secondary, which tells the story of a student who finds his orange marker does more than highlight his sentences.

The other winners are yet to be announced.

All winners receive a one-week session at Vancouver Film School. The event is sponsored by the Vancouver Sun and the CBC.

You can watch all the winning films - and others shortlisted - on the Vancouver Sun's Student Video Awards website.
