Award Winning Postgraduate Student

Congratulations to Kim Montgomery on her Anjool Maldé Journalism Award

Kim Montgomery with her Anjool Maldé Journalism Award

The award was for Kim's work ‘43 Days.’ which was produced as part of her Masters in Media and Broadcast Production 2019/20.  In this work, Kim revisits the period surrounding the Belfast Rape Trial and undertakes a retrospective examination of the media discourse, the damage caused and the consequences for the legal system during that time. "43 Days" is public service journalism. Kim navigates complex and sensitive issues, reaching the humanity at the core of the story with flawless ethics and even compassion. 

Kim said "I was so touched and humbled to receive the Anjool Maldé Journalism prize for my work ‘43 Days.’ which was produced as part of my QUB Masters in Media and Broadcast Production 2019/20. This award has dramatically increased my confidence and will be the driving force behind my further development and career aspirations in this innovative and exciting industry. The Radio Documentary ’43 days’, will I hope shed further light on the public discourse surrounding a high-profile rape trial in Belfast. (Photo courtesy Kim Montgomery)
