Cardiff student Dena Mohamed has won this year's Welsh Livery Guild Travel Scholarship to study women's magazines in Dubai.

Dena, who recently completed her postgraduate diploma course in journalism at the School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies, won the £1,000 bursary which will allow her to analyse how women's magazines in Dubai are trying to balance an interest in Western fashion and culture with traditional Muslim values.

The Welsh Livery Guild travel bursaries attract strong competition each year, with journalism students required to submit their story proposals, a travel budget and an itinerary. The winner is chosen by a panel drawn from the Livery Guild and the School of Journalism.

Professor Richard Tait, Director of the Centre for Journalism at the School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies, said: "Dena's proposal for the scholarship was a well thought out project on an important and interesting subject. Everyone on the course wishes her the best of luck for her trip which should be a great experience."

The Welsh Livery Guild was formed to promote education, science and the fine arts and in particular the promotion of skills and associated professional activities in Wales. The journalism bursary has been running for the last seven years and has sent students on assignment to Africa, Cuba, North America and continental Europe. The winners produce a piece of print or broadcast journalism about their topic; previous reports by winners have been broadcast by the BBC, S4C and published in magazines and newspapers.
