New award in tribute to TfL's Stuart Ross ISSUE NUMBER: TT138
Transport Times launches a new category at the 2017 London Transport Awards, in association with Transport for London. The Stuart Ross Young Transport Communications Professional of the Year award will be open to young communications professionals involved in the transport industry. The award commemorates the life and achievements of Stuart, Transport for London's director of news, who died this year. Those who knew him will be aware of the work he did in giving others a start in life through an internship programme he started for young communications professionals. He was a master communicator himself and an award dedicated to Stuart's legacy seems a fitting tribute.
The award is open to young communications professionals aged 30 or under on 1 Jan 2017.
Nominated candidates should be able to demonstrate an outstanding contribution to improving transport in London. Citations will be accepted up until 31 January 2017; entries should be sent directly to grant.poulton@transporttimes, or for more information contact 0207 828 3804. The shortlist will be revealed in early February and winners will be announced at the London Transport Awards ceremony on 2 March 2017.
