Don't forget our "extra" Court Reporting session on Wednesday from 2 - 3.30 pm in the UG newsroom. And don't forget to bring with you the test paper we are working through and your McNae.
Laerke Christensen became the tenth* Centre for Journalism student to recieve the unique Bob Friend Sky News Scholarship last night, at a glittering event on the Historic Dockyard at Medway.
Sky News assistant editor Peter Diapre presented Laerke with her award, following which BBC media editor Amol Rajan delivered a brilliant lecture 'The Tortoise and the Share' - more of which next week.
In the meantime there are more pictures of last night's event over on our Facebook pages.
* And yes it is the tenth. Tim is buying me an abacus for my next birthday. Clearly I'm in denial over the number of years since our first event...
I have word from Millbank that white smoke has just emerged from chimney above the glass box in the Sky News studio, meaning that this year's Bob Friend scholar has been chosen.
Many congratulations to Year 2 student Laerke Christensen, who has emerged just ahead after what I'm told was an incredibly difficult decision by the final judging panel: Peter Diapre of Sky News, and Tim Luckhurst and Angela Harrison from the Centre for Journalism.
Finalists Alex Crean, Isabel Muller Eidhamar and Frazer Norwell should also be incredibly proud of their performances today in what is a very high pressure situation. They have all enhanced the centre's reputation greatly.
The Centre has been offered the incredible opportunity to cover the Table Tennis World Cup in London next Friday the 23rd of February. We have been asked to produce a short 360 video about the event.
Our lecturer Laura Garcia is looking for TWO ASSISTANTS to help plan, shoot and edit this project.
Want to get in on it? Send a paragraph with a proposal on how to cover this event in 360 video by Monday 19th Feb at 5pm to firstname.lastname@example.org.
EVERYBODY can apply - Yr3's we can rearrange your solo newsday to Thursday. Expenses will be covered.
As Kishan explained during his excellent session in the newsroom, there is a chance for two students from the Centre to spend a little time at Peston on Sunday.
To secure this superb opportunity, you should send Kishan and me one side of A4 setting out what you think of one edition of Pesaton on Sunday (this week's or next) and some suggestions for improvement.
Add a couple of paragraphs about yourself and, curcially, why you think you wopuld do a good job at PoS.
Kishan's e-mail address is kishan dot koria at itv dot com and you probably know that I am T.Luckhurst@kent.ac.uk
DEADLINE TO APPLY IS FRIDAY FEBRUARY 23rd, 2018
