An article about alleged racist remarks in the football match between Rangers F.C. and Slavia Prague. The piece was published yesterday before Glen Kamara's statement. That is the reason I do not mention it.

NCTJ Award win for Adam Landau makes it four in a row for CfJ student journalism projects

The ceremony might have been virtual this time - but the end result was no different. For the FOURTH year in a row, a Centre for Journalism student walked away with the NCTJ's student journalism project of the year award.

This time it was Adam Landau, who wowed the judges with his extraordinary TV documentary demonstrating the uncanny parallels between HS2 and Isambard Kindgdom Brunel's GWR - the original high-speed railway. Adam produced the piece as his final year project as part of the BA Journalism from which he graduated last year. 

Sky News's Alex Crawford, who presented the award in a Zoom ceremony hosted by the broadcaster, said that the judges had described Adam's piece as a "hugely professional piece of documentary journalism".
