THE stunning achievements of young people in Bournemouth were celebrated at an Oscars-style awards ceremony.

Three finalists were selected in each of ten categories for the Bourne Brilliant event and all got the chance to be a star for the night at the Royal Bath Hotel.

The finalists, all aged between 13 and 21, were selected following nominations from members of the public.
