Future Journalist 2021

 The Future Journalist Awards 2021 is a chance to showcase pupils talent and win some great prizes. Organised by Staffordshire University, the annual competition aims to discover the next generation of journalists.  Encouraging  pupils to have passion for writing, or an interest in creating videos or podcasts. To survive and thrive in the modern world of media, today’s journalists have to embrace digital technology.

Pupils can select a topic that interests them, or something that they are passionate about. Choose between submitting a piece of written content, such as an article, review or blog, or creating a short video or audio clip using a smartphone.
