SUE - LLOYD ROBERTS MEDIA AWARD

Katie Razzall has been Special Correspondent at BBC Newsnight since April 2014, covering a wide-ranging brief including social and legal affairs and disability issues. She was previously a correspondent at Channel 4 News, winning an RTS and a Foreign Press Award. Her Newsnight piece on the situation of talented students denied funding for higher education, produced by Maggie Latham, caught the judges’ eye for profiling two talented, bright, ambitious young women who are being denied loans because ‘their immigrations status is not settled’. This report featuring these two women fulfills one of the essential criterion of these Media Awards by giving a central voice to migrant women.
