The Shine School Media Awards is a national competition rewarding UK secondary schools who produce an outstanding newspaper, magazine, podcast or website
Welcome to the Shine School Media Awards!
The Shine School Media Awards is a national competition that rewards a diversity of talent from secondary schools across the UK who work on the writing, editing, design and fund-raising for a school newspaper, magazine, podcast or website.
The culmination of each year’s Shine Awards is a spectacular summertime gala awards ceremony at Stationers’ Hall in the City of London.
The significant benefits of starting a Shine project include an enrichment of the school curriculum, an incentive to creativity and the chance for pupils to win national recognition and in the process enrich their CV and applications for university or college.
The Shine Awards is an endeavour of The Stationers’ Foundation, the charitable arm of The Worshipful Company of Stationers and Newspaper Makers, one of the UK’s ancient livery companies.
After the frustrations we’ve all experienced in 2020, we are already looking forward to seeing friends old and new in a rebooted Shine competition in summer 2021.

At Shine 2020, the team at Bromsgrove School entered their publication Two Zero One, which was created entirely during April’s Covid lockdown. The project was enormously successful, winning among several other awards Best Magazine.
Here, Editor of the Year winner Vivianne Zhang Wei tells us about her experience entering Shine – and how Two Zero One happened. The article is accompanied by two original illustrations by team member Jule Sturz.

“We never imagined we’d arrive at a glitzy awards ceremony in London having reached the final shortlist. A great experience — we’ve already registered for next year!”
