Magazine Academy Awards shortlist

The waiting is over – the Magazine Academy Awards shortlist has been announced.

The competition for magazine journalism students on accredited courses was picked up by Yvonne Ilsley of Sheffield University, Cathy Darby of UcLan and myself after the PTC was forced to pull out because their sponsors withdrew.

The first round of judging is over and the results can be seen here: http://magacademy.weebly.com/shortlist.html

Naturally I am very glad to see a good showing by students from Cardiff but one of the most pleasing aspects is the way that other accredited colleges and universities joined in.

Now we just have to wait until October 24, when the final results will be announced – an no-one, least of all we three organisershave the faintest clue as to who the winners will be!
