The Reason

Our judges found themselves identifying with the figure in The Reason’s cover photo: ‘left behind’ on a platform and out of focus. A remarkable, campaigning cover contains the furious, raw passion and whipsmart creativity that great newspapers are made of. Our judges praised this blend of image and message, written and created in Yorkshire.

Highly Commended

Abingdon School
The Martlet

Highly Commended
