This year’s final cut

Here’s the final score. Heena Tailor continued her rise to win the traffic part of the project, although she was nearly pipped at the last gasp by Pia Walter, who made a strong surge towards the end. Stefan remained steady in third, which is well deserved as he had plugged away solidly throughout, as had Natasha who remained in fourth. We should also mention Mandy who blazed a trail for all of you.

It has been fascinating to watch the projects to develop and in many cases blossom. I hope you have – at the very least – gained useful knowledge about your chosen subjects and gathered a few new technical skills along the way. I’d like to praise Rebecca Williams for the quality of her writing, but also mention Rory for the courage he had at writing about The Mail, to Dinara for getting the attention – and anger – of powerful people and having the bottle to stick it out and to Jemelyn for the seriousness of her work. I’d also like to mention – once more – the help of Alice and Rema on this very blog. I think both of them would have scored better on their individual projects if they had not been so selfless, and their extra effort here is fully noted.

Finally, I hope for some of you this is not the very end. I hope that some of you will feel the urge to continue researching your chosen subjects and building an audience. For those that do, there are valuable lessons yet to come. Maybe those who choose to continue, can let us know by occasionally posting a reminder of themselves here on this blog. I for one will keep looking.
