NCTJ celebrates Shine

We’re really delighted that the NCTJ (the National Council for the Training of Journalists) continues to support Shine. The NCTJ have just posted a report of the summer awards and their fantastic contribution on their website.

As well as assisting with the final round of judging, the NCTJ provided three prizes to the winners of the Best Original Photograph, Best Feature Article and Best Overall Editorial Content categories. The winning students were each given the opportunity to choose a unit from the NCTJ Certificate in Foundation Journalism as their prize.

NCTJ chairman Kim Fletcher was at Stationers’ Hall in June to hand out a series of awards and commented;

  • “The talent on show was incredibly impressive, and I would like to praise the astonishing enthusiasm of the schools for their projects.”

There’s now a lengthy article about NCTJ’s involvement on their website
