The Shine School Media Awards is a free 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 annual culmination of each year’s Shine Awards is a gala ceremony held in central London every summer with student workshops and incredible guest speakers.
We had a wonderful day at the Shine School Media Awards in London on Monday 27th June.
Justine (Features Writer) and Eliza (Editor) from The Beacon team in the academic year 2020-2021 had the opportunity to attend workshops led by media industry professionals before lunch and the awards ceremony itself.
We came home with 3 awards:
- Highly Commended: Editor of the Year (Eliza)
- Winner: Best Magazine
- Winner: The Terry Mansfield CBE Award for Tomorrow’s Talent – Eliza
Eliza has been invited back as the Keynote speaker for next year. This is an absolutely fitting testament to our wonderful school magazine and the hardwork of the team involved. Learn more about The Beacon here.
