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.

Essential Journalism exam Monday March 4th

 

If you are taking the next Essential Journalism exam on Monday, you should find a practice paper has been set up in Cirrus for you. This times out on Thursday evening. If you want to look over a completed paper or part of a paper with me on Friday afternoon, let me know or come and see me. 

I will set up another one to run from Friday until after the exam. Tutors will not have access to this paper before the exam, but it will be useful practice. 

If you can't see a paper set for you and want one, let me know. 

Good luck, 

Angela
