BTEC Media students create Loop Magazine

DLD College London BTEC Media Students produce Loop Magazine  

Eight of our BTEC Media students here at DLD College London were given the challenge and worked extremely hard, to create a magazine from scratch as part of their coursework. Everything has been created by them, including the name and identity of the magazine. 

As part of making the magazine the students had the chance to meet with editors including Jason Cowley, editor of The New Statesman who is featured in the magazine, and Jane Crowther, who is Editor-in-Chief of Total Film magazine. 

This was a particularly challenging task as it was the first time this group of students had worked together as a team. There were a few hurdles along the way but in the end everything came together to create ‘Loop’ magazine. 

Julian Deane said: “We would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to everyone who supported us in the production of this magazine. We hope you have as much fun reading this magazine as we had making it.”
