"Cuft Village" (Old Coptic Language) by Haidi Mansour, won the first prize in Radio & TV Section. The project narrates the change and development of every day life of different cultures, over the ages. That change also affected the Old Coptic Language with what it means in our daily life and almost encrypted in the language. Haidi takes us to a small village called "Cuft" where the old language survived the development and it's still used in its old form that made it conveyed from one generation to the other.
"Serapium Project" which was known as (Cattle's Grave) was presented by Sarah Nasr and it tells us about all the secrets and remains of the pharoanic civilization which is neglected in spite of its historic value and architectural innovation. The grave suffered from looting and robbing and is full of secrets and monumental values.
Heba Mamdouh chose to talk about the "Nubian Kingdom" in her graduation project. Heba went down the very end of the River Nile at Nubian to indulge in its secrets and inhabitants' lives. She wanted to discover the traits of civilization that talked about itself in each house she visited and also every day life which made it to stand out with its distinguished characteristics. From Nubian Kingdom to Moses Castle in Lebanon where Omneya Mamdouh took us to tell us by camera the architectural story which was built up by dreams, memories and efforts of "Moses the Architect" to become the most famous tourists attractions in Lebanon as it shows the success, challenge and love over its walls and corners.

It's an attempt to change the negative image held by mass media as they have different potentials. -Stand Out: It's a magazine by young people and addressing the youth and teens every where.
