The Shine School Media Awards celebrate talented young people in areas such as journalism, design and photography

In its eighth year, the Shine School Media Awards is focused on rewarding the up and coming talent in the print industry and associated sectors.

There were awards for the best magazine cover, the best newspaper, all the way through to best podcast and best business strategy. Key members of the industry were judges for different categories with Bettine Pellant, chief executive officer of PICON UK and Andy Brugier from Denmaur Papers. Moving away from solely the industrial print industry, there was journalist Liz Hunt, consultant editor for features at the Daily Mail, who judged the best feature article coinciding with journalist of the year.

Adam Every, sales manager for The Print Show, a trade exhibition that takes place in September at the NEC, was at the event to commemorate hard working students. He comments: “It was lovely to see the wealth of talent from schools. The have such a special passion for the industry. The Osbourne School was the overall winner of The Harrison Cup, and it was lovely to see them win.”
