Winner of The BAfM Annual News Letter Competition

As many of you will be aware, the British Association of Friends of Museums (BAfM) holds an annual news letter competition. It is up to the editors to submit their entry, and earlier this year, our May 2015 edition was submitted by our editor Pam Sayer, the first entry since she took over the role and the format was dramatically changed.

The entries are judged in three groups depending on the size of the membership for each Friends organisation. We fall into the middle group.


We are delighted to announce that The Bulletin has won its grouping, scooping a prize of £500 for The Friends. The judges’ comments about our magazine were that it was “user friendly & easy to navigate - the coloured strips up the page sides look good but also make everything so clear.”

The prize was collected on Pam's behalf by fellow committee member Lucy Bailey at the Annual Conference in Cheltenham in October (2015).
