The Hugh Cudlipp Trust makes an annual Award to a student of Journalism at a college or university in the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland.

Hugh Cudlipp was the creative genius of 20th Century popular newspapers. Under his guidance, the Daily Mirror of the 1960s set a circulation record of more than five million copies a day. He was made a life peer in 1973 and died in 1998.
 
The £1000 award is for an article or a series of articles on an issue of public interest or concern which—in the Cudlipp tradition—exemplifies lucid and graphic communication. It could be light-hearted rather than serious. Cudlipp also believed that journalism should be fun!
 
The student may be of any nationality but must be enrolled at, or have graduated from, in 2009, a United Kingdom institution recognised by the Association for Journalism Education http://www.ajeuk.org.
 
The article or series must have been written and published in English between 1 December 2008 and 12 December 2009. It may have appeared anywhere in the world on a website or in a national, regional or local newspaper (freesheets included) or newspaper supplement—NOT a college newspaper/magazine/site.
 
Students are limited to ONE entry. They should submit FIVE sets of cuttings or photocopies of the published work signed by a Journalism lecturer on their course.  The source and date of publication must be clearly shown or added.
 
The entry should be accompanied by single A4 sheet of paper with the following information:-
1. Name and age
