Welcome to the Shine School Media Awards!

Calling all Head Teachers and teachers of English, Art & Design and IT: enliven and enrich your curriculum and help your pupils win your school national recognition with a newspaper, magazine (in print or digital edition) podcast or website.

2018 will be the eighth year for the Shine School Media Awards – an exciting initiative for teachers of English, Art & Design and Information Technology to put pupils’ media and communications achievements in the national spotlight at the same time as forming part of coursework.

The Shine Awards was founded – and continues to be supported today – by The Stationers’ Foundation, the charitable arm of The Stationers, one of the UK’s ancient Livery Companies.
