2017 Sky Bob Friend Scholarship


The 2017 Sky Bob Friend Scholarship will be presented to this year's winner at the annual Sky Bob Friend Memorial Lecture. This will take place in the Dockyard Church at 7pm on Thursday 2nd March.

This year's lecturer will be Ed Conway, Economics Editor at Sky News and Times columnist.The crucial question now is: to whom will he present the prize? We (Sky News and the CfJ) will decide via the usual competitve process.

How does it work? We'll explain all in a briefing to be held in the main newsroom at 1300 on Tuesday 17th January. Please attend. This is a unique and immensely valuable opportunity open to all undergraduate students in the Centre. The winner will spend a month long, fully funded placement at Sky News. They will also receive a £3,000 contribution to their tuition fees.Beyond these rewards there is, of course, the prestige and glory of being a member of the tiny and highly select band of Sky Bob Friend Scholars.

Following the briefing, the deadline for submissions will be Friday February 10th. Shortlisted contestants will travel to London for the final selection interviews which will take place at Sky' Millbank studios in Westminter on Friday 17th February. Come to the briefing. All will be explained.

How NOT to do mobile journalism


After spending several hours at the Chatham Historic Dockyard on a freezing cold Wednesday morning, my group partner [who I won’t name and shame] and I walked away like we had just made it as big-time journalists. We had turned up at the dockyard with a clear plan of action: to find the BBC comedy, Quacks, film-set and to interview several of the cast members – which was incredibly naïve of us to think that we would actually be allowed to do so, but nevertheless, we were big-time journalists ready to break our first CFJ story.
