Journalism Award (co-hosts School of Creative and Cultural Business,
Robert Gordon University) - Winner: YANITA GEORGIEVA
College Citation from Dr Nicola Furrie Murphy: Yanita excelled in her journalism studies across all aspects of media production, styles and subject matter. For her dissertation, she sought to investigate and account for Scotland’s safest seat. This research project arose from the acute observation of a genuinely compelling paradox of the electoral dominance of the Lib Dems in Orkney against a background of major political shifts across time and geographical territory elsewhere in the UK. In Investigative Journalism, she produced a radio documentary on the religious cult, popularly known as The Moonies.. Tutors and our external examiner rated her outputs as first class demonstrating sterling professionalism of the highest order". Multi-lingual Yanita was snapped up by the BBC World Service even before she had formully graduated. Yanita: "This award is as humbling as it is unexpected. Journalism is the reason I get up every morning, so this award is an incredible honour. The need for independent, sharp reporting has never been greater and I feel proud to be part of this industry." Samples of her work: Mental Health film documentary here. Radio documentary on a religious cult here.

Theres is a stark and strident beauty to his eloquently and sophisticatedly presented work".
Emma: "It was fantastic to win the award and I felt very proud to collect it in front of my partner and daughter. To have my work recognised in this way is heartening. The award will enable me to continue to build my portfolio which will help me realise my ambitions of working commercially as a food photographer".
Danny: "Being chosen for this Award was indeed surprising and generous too! Considering the very personal perspective portrayed within my work I felt very flattered, and is an affirmation of the hard work put into this major project. I plan to continue developing my personal work throughout the coming years, with the intention of creating images that can be used and shared by others who struggle to express their own emotions. I have a particular interest in my work existing in the contexts of art and photography as form of 'visual therapy' as opposed to conventional talking therapies".
The Dean Broderick Memorial Award for Graphic Design - Winner: BEN JOHNSON
The Trust was delighted to award an honorarium to the winner of this prize that rewards 'that little something' pointing to a hidden potential and a striking unconventional flair. Cleveland College of Art & Design picked Ben Johnson as the worthy winner. Ben: "I am so thankful for this generous and unexpected prize! Leaving university is a really nerve-racking time that is filled with a lot of uncertainty, so having someone pick you from a group and put their faith and their money into your future gives you that extra bit of confidence and drive to go out and succeed. This prize has done that for me and it will do the same for the generations of graduates to come - thank you".
