We can confirm this year’s winners of the 2017 NUJ student prize and comments from the judges.

Level 1: Holly Clemens

“Striking front page shows a real sense of how words on a page can be an art form. Excellent use of white space and sparing use of colour. Text not perfect but the crisp writing pulls you in to an absorbing tale about helping people involved in sex work on the streets.”

Level 2: Katherine Williams & Georgia Gillespie

“A convincing radio package about a little-covered topic – why south Bristol sends so few youngsters to university, and the alternatives for them.” “Good choice of interviewees well strung together. A cogent piece.”

Level 3: Alicia Brooks

“An astonishing amount of depth delivered through a very handsome website that manages not to feel cluttered. Lovely, crisp design and well structured visuals make a mass of information easily accessible. Every aspect of women’s sexual health is covered in a way that’s not stuffy or patronising.” “A very well assembled package – in fact, hard to fault.”

MA: Rachel Dinning

“A striking, simple design draws you in to the website. The video blogs all look a bit samey on the page but the material is not. Good, punchy quotes tell the story – lots of stories, in fact.” “Very impressive and balanced exploration of a number of taboos with which society hasn’t yet come to terms.”
