2019 CfJ Daily Mail Scholarships

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. How do you win ? Contestants must submit an original news report suitable for publication in the print edition of the Daily Mail. Your copy should be no less than 600 words in length and no more than 1000 words. Deadline for submission is 5 pm on Friday 13th May.  Please submit by e-mail to T.Luckhurst@kent.ac.uk (copy your e-mail to Nicola) AND submit a printed copy to Nicola's office. Senior staff in the Centre will draw up a shortlist of candidates who will then attend for interview with Alex Bannister, Managing Editor Associated Newspapers, at Northcliffe House on a date to be agreed in late May or June. Alex will choose the 2019 scholars from the shortlist on the basis of their news stories and performances at interview.

Congratulations to Karina Pavlova, Bob Friend Sky News Scholar 2019

Many congratulations to Year 3 undergraduate student Karina Pavlova, who has just been announced as the 2019 Sky News Bob Friend Scholar.

Fancy a reporting trip to this year's #March4Women?

Looking for something exciting to do on Sunday 3rd of March? Men, women, everybody's welcome. I am planning to attend and cover it for a couple of Mexican outlets and if you're still looking for portfolio stories this could be a cool thing to go do! The March starts at 12pm and then it culminates in an hour long event in Central Hall Westminster that you need to buy a 5 pound ticket for. Covering protests, demonstrations and marches is an important part of journalist's work. We could do a little unofficial field trip and train up from Medway together. Interested? I'm not hard to find =)
