Two BU graduates win national awards for their journalism at this year’s BJTC awards.

Two MA Multi-Media Journalism graduates were presented with national awards for their journalism last week at the Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BJTC) annual awards ceremony at Ravensbourne College.

Derek English won the TV News item category for his piece on Purbeck Wind Farm which was commented on by judges as being “a well thought through piece, covering a range of the issues, reflecting the concerns of the community.”

The other BU winner was Marta Clayton who won website of the year for her entry ‘Gypsies and Travellers: Forced to Roam?’

Judges commended her entry as “a well thought through editorial narrative, mixed with a strong sense of look and feel gives this site a sense of texture and detail.”

The 2011 Awards had around 50 entries in the seven categories with Judges including; Jon Godel Chair of Judges and former senior manager at ITN, Mark Southgate former Head of News for Meridian TV, Mike Southgate senior executive at LWT and Meridian, Martin Campbell Chairman of the BJTC and Matt Hall Multimedia Editor, Culture & Sport at The Guardian.
