The Shine School Media Awards have been created to

  • recognise young creative talent
  • develop literacy, publishing and business skills
  • foster teamwork
  • encourage a respect for copyright
  • encourage informed awareness of environmental and sustainability issues
  • Provide a Learning resource on publishing and related topics

Inspiring through recognition

Developed by the 600-year-old Stationers’ Livery Company in the City of London, the awards are for schools in England and Wales. Producing a publication may be a suitable project for inclusion in some coursework directed at developing skills for the creative and cultural industries.  See for example  (http://www.nocn.org.uk/qualifications/art-and-design-qualifications).

Louise Adamson, Holmer Green Senior School wrote – Can I just say thank you for an excellent experience on Monday.  Whilst Andrew would obviously have love to have won, we are all immensely proud that he and the team got so far against some excellent competition.

The day was really good and the sixth formers enjoyed the opportunity to speak to so many high-powered people.  Hopefully the email addresses Andrew gained will be put to good use in securing him some additional work experience.

Thank you for a wonderful day on Monday. My students and I really enjoyed our day at Stationers’ Hall and were thrilled to receive the awards.

I am sure Ed Cousins would love to write something for the Stationers’ News – can you tell me a bit more about it and what sort of articles you would be looking for and I will forward the information to him? He is now away on examination leave (and may well be on holiday) so there is a chance I might not be able to contact him.

Thanks again for providing this fantastic opportunity for schools. My students learnt a lot from the process and also picked up lots more useful advice during the workshops on Monday. Berkhamsted will definitely be back next year, although I will be away on maternity leave so you will be getting emails from me colleague, Ian Cruickshanks.

Thank you for all your hard work organising the awards event. We had a lovely day. Very much enjoyed the workshop sessions, and the awards presentation was so dynamic, really made the students feel special. We hope we are worthy of a return visit!
