The Print Futures Awards are now open for entries. I was lucky enough to win one last year, and would 100% recommend everyone from the CfJ putting themselves forward.
Rachel Russell, the incoming Overnight Editor of Express Online (Daily Express newspaper group) is coming to visit the CfJ to talk to students this Friday, 28 Feb.
She will be here about noon and will speak to any year groups that can join us in G1-04. Rob has said people in his MA/YiJ groups can join in, if they are not on the trail of Greta in Bristol.
Rachel will talk about her experience in journalism and also about a plan she has to recruit graduates and students for either paid contracts or paid occasional freelance shifts.
The Google News Initiative Fellowship connects students and recent graduates who want to explore the intersection between journalism and technology with news organisations.
The successful candidates will kick off their careers in the news industry by spending 8 weeks in Summer working with experts in newsrooms and creating a professional network.
