Hat-trick of successes for Centre for Journalism students in NCTJ awards shortlist

No fewer than three Centre for Journalism students have been shortlisted in this year's National Council for the Training of Journalists Awards.

In the student project category, two CfJ documentaries are on the shortlist:

Mike Haffenden's superb film Team BRIT - on the Road to Recovery examines how a motor racing team is playing a major part in the rehabiliation of injured British armed forces service personnel.

And Indya Clayton's wonderful documentary The Search for Black Blood goes on a personal journey investigating why there are so few black blood donors in the UK.


In the features category, third year student Isabel Eidhamar has been shortlisted for a portfolio that includes her amazing multimedia profile of a survivor of the Utoya massacre in Norway.

Year 3 project supervisors

Supervisors for the Year 3 journalism projects are as in the table below.

Remember that it is the student's responsibility to set up appointments with their supervisor. You should arrange to see them at the earliest opportunity.

Journalism-themed tunes for #cfj10

Looking forward to seeing lots of old and new faces tomorrow night (215 at the latest count) at The Deep End for our celebration of the Centre for Journalism's first decade.

If you haven't yet registered to attend, just head to our Eventbrite event page - that way you won't miss out on the free glass of fizz. The fun starts at 7.

Word is that @lauragrb has been hard at work scouring old Welcome Week videos from down the years, which may make their way onto the big screen...

And I also hear that @Robert_Bailey_ is preparing a journalism-themed playlist for his Karaoke offering on the night, starting of course with The Beatles' Here Comes The Sun. Add your own suggestions at #cfj10. The more obscure the better.

And finally, just for the avoidance of doubt next week, remember that what goes on in the Deep End, stays in the Deep End...

CfJ bylines galore in today's Daily Mail

Centre for Journalism postgrad Harry Howard is having a productive time on his placement on the Daily Mail newsdesk, if today's edition of the paper is anything to go by. Harry, who completed his Multimedia Journalism MA this summer, has capped his first week on the job with no fewer than 3 bylines in the Saturday paper, including the prized page 3 lead - for a story on two BP garages facing each other on the same road charging different prices for fuel.
