Calling all would-be journalists
The ‘London Voices’ competition is for anyone who has an interest in citizen journalism, who is over 16 and lives, works or studies in London. No previous experience is required – these awards are all about encouraging new talent and getting as many Londoners as possible to have a go!
There are some great cash prizes (£2,000, £750 and £250) plus a range of free training and skills support.
Entries can be in written form, video, radio, blog, or photo journalism. There are four broad themes: local communities, being young in the city, the London of the future, and the impact of social media.
Short-listed participants will also have their work showcased on the London Voices and Media Society websites as well as being invited to a presentation at the prestigious Media Society Summer Drinks Party in June.
Details of the competition can be found here or on Twitter @LondonVoices16.
The deadline for entries is 22 May 2017 – so don’t delay.
