2019 Geographical Association Publishers' Awards

The GA Publishers' Awards are given for materials associated with geography in schools and colleges that are considered to make a significant contribution to geographical education and professional development. In 2019, over half of all the awards went to Time for Geography videos developed in collaboration with our partners.


2019 Silver Awards:

Formation of U-shaped valleys (with kitchen geography) (created in partnership with Cardiff University)

Floodplains (created in partnership with Cardiff University)

Glacial landforms: Pyramid peaks (created in partnership with Cardiff University)

Glacial landforms: Corries, Cirques, Cwms (created in partnership with Cardiff University)

Glacial landforms: Arêtes

River Transport Processes

Official Commendation: Time for Geography has produced six fantastic geomorphology videos as part of their high-quality series of Knowledge Booster videos. The videos are beautifully shot on location, placing experts into UK landscapes to explore a range of case studies on a number of key topics. Informative and engaging presenters bring each topic to life, making the content interesting, purposeful and, most importantly, accessible. In Formation of U-shaped valleys (with kitchen geography), the judges were impressed with analogies used to aid understanding, and particularly loved the use of a water melon to demonstrate how a v-shaped valley can be gouged out by a glacier resulting in the formation of a u-shaped valley. The production of each video is to a very high standard and includes the use of clear, crisp imagery of real landscapes; the spoken word shown as text on screen; each video broken down into bitesize chunks and rounding off each one with a summary.

Soft engineering: Sand dune management (created in partnership with the University of the West of England)

Hard engineering approaches to coastal management (created in partnership with the University of the West of England)

Official Commendation: Time for Geography, in partnership with a number of universities, has produced a range of beautifully shot and intellectually stimulatingvideos that successfully explore elements of the geography curriculum in a dynamic, hands-on and real way. Without exception the videos are brought to life by an excellent mix of engaging and expert presenters who create a clean, new feel to each topic without being overly academic. The judges really enjoyed the up-to-date learning the experts were able to deliver through the use of original case studies such as Gibraltar Point and Portsmouth rather than more familiar examples which are often overused. The production of each video is to a very high standard and includes the use of clear, crisp imagery of real landscapes; the spoken word shown as text on screen; each video broken down into bitesize chunks and rounding off each one with a summary.
