I was recently recognised at an awards ceremony. Fortunately that awards ceremony did not take into account the speed at which journalists blog about having been decorated by awards panels, because given that it's taken me over a month to write this blog, I clearly suck at it.
The British Society of Magazine Editors (BSME) awarded me a 'Highly Commended' certificate in the category of 'Best Print Writer' at their 2017 Talent Awards. They've even given me a logo to use 'on your website', so I've put it here as I don't really know what else to do with it.
It's been a good few months for me in terms of awards, given that this 'Dear World' cover that I wrote for Time Out ended up winning 'Best Cover' at the Digital Magazine Awards (Second category down) and my Skepta interview for Time Out was shortlisted for Scoop of the year at the BSME awards and won an 'honourable mention' for Best Features Package at the 2016 Eddie Awards (no: me neither - but praise is praise, eh?). Not, obviously, that I got round to writing about any of them until ages later. Slow journalism, yeah?
