Floreo, a magazine devoted to sustainability and helping people adopt small changes to their lives to help save the planet, was the winner of our annual Dragons’ Den competition for MA Magazine Journalism students

The four groups of postgrad #ntujournos pitched their ideas to a panel of judges from the magazine world on Thursday Feb 11 and the winning entry is being produced by all 14 students later this term.

The judges were Diana Kenwood, award-winning former editor of titles including Marks&Spencer magazine and Women’s Weekly; Georgie Kiely, digital food editor at BBC Good Food and an alumna of the course; and Mike Shallcross, associate publisher of B2B and specialist titles with Mark Allen Group.
