NUJ recognised at TUC communications awards

  • 16 Sep 2022

The Journalist magazine has been commended in the 'best union journal' category at this year's ceremony.

The Journalist has been commended for its editorial mix, quality of writing and a lack of spin at the TUC’s communications awards. The annual awards celebrate the work of all unions in communications and campaigns. This year’s ceremony took place at Congress House in London.

The judges said:

“As you would expect from the journalists’ union the magazine is very well-written. The judges found a good mixture of light and serious pieces with clear reporting and a lack of spin or editorial ‘line’. All topped off with a lovely cover and a great ‘feel’ to the magazine.”

The judges included Chris McLaughlin, political commentator at the Mirror and editor at large of Tribune, and Ellie Gellard, strategic director at the campaigning group 38 Degrees. They said the magazines that did best were the ones they felt “made the most persuasive case to non-members casually picking them up or reading them on screen”. They looked for “great journalism, enticing design and stories absolutely relevant to the membership”.

The Journalist’s editor Christine Buckley received the award from the TUC president Sue Ferns.
