Two BU graduates have both won awards from the Broadcast Journalism Training Council.
Two MA Multi-Media Journalism graduates have won awards from the Broadcast Journalism Training Council in competition with accredited courses across the country.
Marta Clayton and Derek English who graduated from the course last year both picked up the highly sought after BJTC prizes.
For her project on the effects of the Localism Bill on gypsies and travellers, Clayton was awarded Best Website of the Year. The project looked particularly at the evictions at Dale Farm, which she was working on before it was picked up by the national news media.
Derek English also won the hotly-contested award for TV News Item, for his reporting on wind farms. His project was praised for covering “a range of the issues reflecting the concerns of the community.”
