MediaMagazine Writing Competition 2016 – The Winners

Well, this was seriously interesting – we received 60+ entries covering a huge range of media enthusiasms and passions, from blogging to Batman, from Taylor Swift to Instagram, from cinema-going to house music. No two pieces covered the same ground, every approach and voice was different, and if MediaMag was a sociology journal, we’d be able to construct a fascinating hypothetical profile of the media consumption of young people today... Many thanks for all your entries, which we’ve really enjoyed reading. We're delighted to announce our winners, whose work will be published in MediaMagazine 57.
