Over 200 schools nationally entered the Shine Awards this year. 30 schools were invited to attend their annual awards' ceremony. Christina Storey, Sarah Witty, Luke O'Sullivan and Miss Ireland attended this year as representatives of the INK 2014-2015 editorial team.
The hard work of this year's editorial team was rewarded and celebrated with a whole host of accolades awarded to INK this year. Three 'Highly Commended' scrolls were awarded to INK for 'Best Print Magazine', 'Best Design and Layout' and 'Most Outstanding Pupil [Luke O'Sullivan]'.
Not only was Luke O'Sullivan - technical and design chief - 'Highly Commended' for his outstanding commitment, foresight and ingenuity, he was also awarded with a very special accolade of 'Young Production Editor with exceptional promise' - richly deserved after his three dedicated years of service to INK.
However, the stand out award of the day was winning the highly coveted 'Best Online Magazine'. The team was awarded a trophy and a £1,000 cheque to help further develop the magazine next year.
The ceremony was a perfect way to end a very successful year for INK; it was fantastic for the team's efforts to be recognised and celebrated on a national level.
Miss Ireland would like to extend her warmest thanks, not only to all the editorial team, but to every one of the 50 contributors in 2014-2015 who helped to make INK the award-winning success it is.
