Dr Shane Tilton has been presented with the Young Stationers’ Prize for 2018, on 16th July 2018, at a dinner at Stationers’ Hall,by last year’s winner, Ian Buckley of Prima Software.
Dr Tilton is Assistant Professor of Multimedia Journalism at Ohio Northern University and in making this award the judges recognised his commitment to both his subject and his students, while acknowledging the number of awards that he had received from within the industry. These demonstrate his standing within both his academic subject and the broader industry.
The Young Stationers’ Awards and Prize set out to recognise outstanding talent and achievement among those under 40 in a range of qualifying professions and sectors across the communications and content industries.
In a change from previous years, the judges made extra awards recognising achievements in five sectors of the Communications and content industries.
Winners of the five Sector Awards were:
Marie Cannon, Knowledge and Information Officer at Clifford Chance, received the Young Stationers’ Award for Books and Archiving.
Salma Haidrani, Freelance Journalist, received the Young Stationers’ Award for Journalism and Communications.
Callum Edwards, Digital Marketing Manager at Prima Software, received the Young Stationers’ Award for Office Products and Supplies for launching Prima’s rebrand and integrated marketing campaign to much success.

This year’s judging panel was chaired by Professor Tim Connell, a Court Assistant of the Stationers' Company and Professor Emeritus at City, University of London.
He said, “in deciding to add an overall award to the list of prizes on offer, the judges felt the need to acknowledge the importance of the all-round contributions made by Doctor Tilton not only in the educational sphere but also with regard to the benefits for students in terms of training and support in preparing them for the professional world.”
This was Dominic Graham’s last event as Chairman of the Young Stationers. Ella Kahn now takes over the role.
