Hi all, Nici here, the new Editor for Arts Award on Voice. As we say a half goodbye to Bhav (don't worry he's not leaving completely, he's stepping into the Media Editor role) I'll be running this joint looking for more great content, inspirational stories and really useful resources to help you get through your Arts Award and find your feet after you've finished! I've started by creating a guide on how to research work placements and opportunity.

Mozfest was a great success in October and there's lots of great content pouring in, including this article from Tom Innis on fighting fake news with literacy skills. Check out the Mozfest Arts box for more . In November we'll be looking at ways in which Arts Award can help you build self-confidence and grit. Is there any specific content you'd like to see? Let us know!

We know the heartbreak of Artsbox closing down soon, so we wanted to help by both updating our Digital Portfolios advice page, and creating a guide on using Voice for your own Arts Award. And a summary version for all the advisers out there.
