This is an older post, but I’m keeping it pinned up here because it’s something I’m proud of. I picked up two awards at the 2019 Magazine Academy Awards, winning BBC Worldwide Interview of the Year and receiving a ‘Highly Commended’ classification in another category, Best Sports Feature.
More information is available on this page, as well as links to the articles in question.
11/08/2019: I won the ‘BBC Worldwide Interview of the Year’ award yesterday, at the Magazine Academy Awards. The award was for my chat with Hannah Rankin, which took place in November last year, before Hannah challenged Claressa Shields for her world title.
The interview was published on the back page of The Scotsman and discussed Hannah’s unusual double-career as a professional boxer and classical bassoonist.
I was also ‘Highly Commended’ in the Best Sports Feature category. My submission was a chat with Celtic Super Middleweight Champion, Tommy Philbin, about his boxing career and his struggles with mental health issues.
