CfJ student wins NCTJ project of the year award for second year running

Hearty congratulations to the three Centre for Journalism students who were honoured at last night's NCTJ Awards gala dinner.

It was a Centre for Journalism one-two in the student project of the year category. Mike Haffenden took top spot with his brilliant documentary on Team BRIT, the motorsport team helping to rehabilitate injured service personnel; and Indya Clayton was highly commended with her fantastic investigation into the shortage of black blood donors in the UK. Both graduated in the summer. Mike is now working for DriveTribe - the online venture founded by Messrs Clarkson, May and Hammond; Indya starts work at the Oxford Mail on Monday.

In the hotly contested features category, Year 2 student Isabel Eidhamar was commended for her portfolio that included pieces on ocean plastics and an interactive interview with a survivor of the Utoya terror attack in Norway.

This is the second successive year that a CfJ student has scooped the project of the year award, following Boglarka Kosztolanyi's win in 2017 for her interactive project on the rise of Hungary's far right.

No pressure then, Year 3.
