From eight entries, the winner of the IPED Prize 2012 has been announced.

The winner from the eight who entered was Kate Manton, whose essay, The scope of editing in the 21st century, was written for a post-graduate certificate in editing at Macquarie University.

The judges’ comments on Kate’s essay included:

  • Scored well on documenting original research of relevance to those in the editorial profession and the publishing/communications industry. Succeeds in weaving into her argument a range of generic online editing issues and challenges to be faced by editors in many contexts of work.
  • Manton's critical edge is continuously stimulating: her ability to harness the language of her quotations to drive her argument makes it succinct and effective. On the editorial front, she is close to professional.
  • Cogent, engaging and persuasive.
  • Excellent interweaving of argument with secondary material and specific examples.

Kate Manton has kindly allowed IPEd to provide her winning entry for members to read.
