Daily reporter wins Society Award in NQJ exams
16 August 2017
A daily reporter has been awarded the Society of Editors’ Award for the best news interview as part of the National Qualification in Journalism (NQJ).
Charlotte Bowe, a reporter for the Northern Echo, won the £250 prize for what the judges described as “a piece of copy to make a news desk very happy”.
The moderator said: “Charlotte’s interview had a good pace. Her intro grabbed the reader immediately followed by a strong second and third par that set the scene well. This was followed by a chronology that led the reader through, backed-up by first-rate quotes.”
A student of Press Association Training Newcastle in 2014, Charlotte now works for The Northern Echo. Charlotte said: “From all of the incredible tutors at the former Press Association Training centre in Newcastle to my talented colleagues at The Northern Echo, I’ve been extremely spoilt to work with and learn from such dedicated journalists.
“Hopefully winning this award is a way of saying thank you to all of them for their generosity, patience and wisdom.”
