Each year, groups of journalism students at DMU create print and digital magazines from scratch – choosing the theme, naming the publication, landing the stories, and adding columns and reviews. They design the pages using industry-standard software and create websites and build their magazines’ social media presence. The task gives them the chance to combine all the practical skills they have learned and refined in three years of study – and to apply them to a real-world journalistic project.
The cover award is being judged by Kate Williams, editor of Chat, one of Britain’s biggest-selling real-life magazines.
The winners, who will share a £200 prize, will be revealed soon.
