Several post-graduate students from the MLitt in ¬†Digital Journalism course won awards and commendations for their work in my Producing Media class at this year’s Scottish Student Journalism Awards.¬†

Bryce Mills won first prize in the Arts & Entertainment category for her feature about a tattoo artist in America who creates free 3D nipples to women who’ve had mastectomies. Read the story here.

Sophie Law, co-editor-in-chief of The New Normal, won two commendations for Feature of the Year and the Calum Macdonald Memorial Award for her story about addiction to prescription drugs. Read the story here.

In addition, the student-run paper Strathclyde Telegraph won a commendation for Publication of the Year. (I must admit I had no direct involvement there though).
