Scottish Student Journalism Award
GEMS are thrilled to announce that from 2019 we will be sponsoring a new award with the Scottish Student Journalism Awards!
This award will seek to highlight the importance of treating women equally - as employees, as contributors and as subjects of media attention - to a new generation of journalists.
Submissions are judged by a panel of experts from across the sector, and the award is for excellence in reporting on gender issues and/or in challenging gender stereotypes through reporting.
The 2019 GEMS award was presented by MP Mhairi Black to Laura Webster (Glasgow Caledonian University), for her excellent article on Category is Books: The queer bookshop helping Glasgow's LGBTQ community.
Congratulations to all who won, were commended, or shortlisted in this year's awards! Stay tuned for information on SSJA 2020!
