The Reason

A superb year for The Reason, which the judges praised as having the feel of a well-edited local newspaper. This edition leads with a regional angle on a Westminster story about reduced funding on new rail lines. The idea of framing national issues within the writers’ own experience is an excellent approach which works well.

Highly Commended

Abingdon School
The Martlet

The Martlet kicks off with a fantastic scoop: a Ukraine-themed interview with Lord Darroch. The editor and his team have produced a quality publication of well-written articles on subjects of substance.
