First award in 2014 Bristol NUJ Student Prizes

THE first of this year’s Bristol NUJ student awards has been presented to UWE student Rachael Clarke following her graduation ceremony.

Rachael won the third year prize for her comprehensive 15-minute film discussion of the recycling scene in the Bristol area.

She was congratulated by Bristol NUJ branch chair Paul Breeden after the graduation ceremony at Bristol Cathedral as he presented her with the prize, a cheque for £50.

“The judges were really impressed by the quality of all the entries for the NUJ Prizes from all three years of UWE journalism students,” he said.

“The competition for the third year prize was especially close but in the end the judges  – who are all members of the NUJ branch executive – were unanimous in picking Rachael as the winner.”

The competition is designed to encourage UWE journalism students to display professional standards in their work.

“The judges are looking for investigative work of a high quality which presents complex ideas in a readily understandable way,” said Paul. “Rachael was especially good at explaining the various strands of recycling initiatives and making the subject interesting to viewers.

“Our congratulations go to her and all the other entrants, and we hope they find opportunities to use professionally the skills they have learned at UWE.”

Prizes for the first and second year winners will be presented at a special ceremony at the beginning of the autumn term at UWE.
