I am pleased to confirm that the Daily Mail has generously agreed to offer two scholarships for students in the CfJ this year. Each will be worth £2,500 and work experience at the Daily Mail. The first scholarship will be awarded to a student studying our NCTJ accredited MA in Multimedia Journalism, the second to a final year undergraduate studying for the BA in Journalism.

The standard of entries this year was excellent, and the number of submissions was also high. Those who have reached the shortlist should be very proud. The shortlisted candidates are:  Karina Pavlova, Sam Baker, Joe Dawson and Jess Sharp. Many congratulations to all of you and good luck when you meet Peter Diapre at Sky Millbank next Friday.

Shortlisting is always difficult and we understand that many of you will feel disappointed.

When we have finished breifing those who are shortlisted, we will, of course, be pleased to offer feedback to all who made submissions.
