Exciting news everyone! The Press Gazette Student Journalism Awards for 2008 are now open, so it’s time to be getting in all your nominations. Good luck!
The Student Journalism Awards celebrate the work of the next generation of stars in this exciting and challenging profession.
The awards are open to all students who were enrolled on journalism courses between 22 June 2007 and 22 June 2008.
The course can be of any length between three weeks and three years and of any academic standing – entries are encouraged from students on HND, GNVQ, postgraduate, undergraduate or private diploma courses.
There is no restriction on age for entrants but please state your age on the entry form.
This entry form should be completed by the students themselves where possible, but tutors are also invited to enter on behalf of those who have already finished their studies.
From our panel of industry heavyweights, two in the relevant fields will judge two categories each, and the shortlist will be announced on our website and in the Press Gazette on Thursday 12th June.
All shortlisted candidates will be invited to a lunchtime ceremony at Haberdashers’ Hall in the heart of the city of London on Friday 27 June 2008, where the winners will be announced. The day will be a great opportunity to mix with other students as well as working journalists and editors from your chosen field.
There are CASH prizes for each winning student, and key figures from the world of journalism will be there to witness the proceedings.
Previous winners are making waves in national and regional newsrooms up and down the country. If you want to join them, getting this entry form in could be the best career move you make.
Deadline for entries is Monday 19 May. More information on how to nominate here can be found by clicking here!
