Our course magazine re:new took top prize in the New Digital Product Concept category. The website involved the whole re:new team but was steered to its prize-winning form by the hard work and dedication of Aimee Steen and Josie Allchin. Associate lecturer Simon Williams must also take a bow for his invaluable input and without Ruth Harrison, whose idea it was, there would have been no magazine.
This year's Magazine Academy saw a new award – the opportunity for shortlisted students to become editor of 100 Voices, a multimedia magazine launched by Redwood Publishing for Barclays Bank (catchline: "By students with more sense than money"). I am proud to say that, after a round of searching interviews, Angharad Jones is the first winner of this fantastic prize.
Our other course magazine, ivy, was also shortlisted – given the level of competition Magazine Academy inspires this is a major achievement in itself.
Perfect timing for the 40th Anniversary of the Centre for Journalism at Cardiff University.
