From galvanising her fellow students with a presentation in school assembly to organising an ambitious photoshoot which involved the whole of Year 8, Hannah has proved an inspirational editor. The resulting magazine is a tribute to her organisational, creative and leadership skills – a cohesive, visually and editorially impactful publication.with something to appeal to all sections of the school community.

Highly Commended

Abingdon School
Ben Lisemore

The Martlet is a thoroughly professional product which cleverly built upon its insider’s story on the biggest subject of our time: Ukraine. Well done to Ben and his team for producing a quality publication which combined up-to-date news stories with reports of school activities and lighter, humorous contributions – all clearly signposted, enabling the reader to navigate the newspaper with ease.

Highly Commended

King Edward VI Handsworth School for Girls
Eliza Clark

Eliza’s chatty and welcoming editor’s letter set the tone perfectly for this bright, buzzy and interactive magazine, with her distinctive voice felt strongly throughout. The judges loved the mix of articles, fun competitions and imaginative use of graphics. Eliza knows her readers and stated clearly her aim of offering something for everybody to enjoy – the mark of a great editor.
