Scottish Student Journalism Award

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.

Highly commended this year were Kaitlin Easton (University of Stirling) for The Perfect Victim and Steven Mair (University of Strathclyde) for Period Poverty Success Stories.

Congratulations to all who won, were commended, or shortlisted in this year's awards! Stay tuned for information on SSJA 2020!
