Midland Media Awards

The Midland Media Awards celebrate and recognise  the achievements of media over the last year. Encouraged by my university tutor, I entered into the ‘Student Journalist’ category with some work from Birmingham Recycled.

Not expecting to stand much of a chance against the talents in the Midland area, I am truly shocked to have just received an email to say I have been nominated!

The awards evening is to be held at the ICC in Birmingham on May 13, which many of the well known media companies throughout the UK will attend.

I’m keeping my fingers and toes crossed, but I’m extremely excited to just to attend.

I’m happy to announce that I have been offered a place on the NCTJ Fast Track course at Harlow College.

My exam and interview went well but I am glad to have the place confirmed.

NCTJ Entry Exam

Now that the end of my degree is in sight – I’m weighing up my options post graduation.

Having been advised to complete the NCTJ course, I applied for a place and now have the details of my entrance exam. Although not 100% sure if the course is the right route to take I plan to sit the exam and wait on the outcome.

The modules covered by the course are extremely similar, if not the same, as those taught on my current BA (Hons) Media and Communications degree, however the course is not NCTJ accredited.

Currently living on the Suffolk/Cambridgeshire border, Harlow College seemed to be the closest college offering the course.  My exam is set for Friday March 26. Fingers crossed.

Spaghetti Junction continued… Editor election

As Spaghetti Junction celebrated its first birthday of student control, elections took place. A new team was selected which I was lucky enough to be voted in as editor.

Handling the change over was somewhat difficult, however my first issue “The Fashion Issue” (featured above) proved to be a success.

After editing the main section of the magazine for the previous year, I found the increased responsibility reasonably easy. My involvement in the magazine now dominates the majority of my spare time, from editing to design and even organising fundrasing events, such as SpagFest 2009.

Where to begin?

Filed under: General — goldie27 @ 10:10 pm

Finally, I’ve started to put my portfolio online.  But how to display it?

Aside from the usual listings of achievements, CV’s and testimonials how should I showcase my work?

Now in my second year of a BA Media and Communications (Journalism) degree, I have a fairly varied portfolio ranging from bridal magazines to daily newspapers and online blogs. Having looked at a variety of portfolios from other experts in the field I am even more confused as to which style to adopt.

Any tips would be extremely beneficial!
