Deadline: 18 August 2017
Thomson Foundation, in partnership with the UK Foreign Press Association (FPA), is inviting young journalists from around the world for its Young Journalist Award 2017.
The Young Journalist Award is Thomson Foundation’s annual journalism competition, dedicated to finding and inspiring ambitious and emerging journalistic talent from across the globe.
An esteemed panel from the foundation — all highly experienced journalists within their own right — will tackle the substantial, scouring through hundreds of entries from young journalists from across the globe which, in previous years, have included Africa, the Indian subcontinent, China, South America, parts of Central Asia and the Middle East, for stories that are revelatory, prompt public debate and have led to, or have the potential to lead to, positive change in society.
- The competition is open to journalists aged 30 or under from countries with a gross national income per capita of less than $20,000.
- Applicants three published or broadcast pieces of work were produced in the 12 months preceding 18th August 2017 (the 12 months prior to the deadline for submissions).
- Applicants will attach a verbatim translation or transcript in English, if their stories are not in English.
- Applicants will send a letter from their current editor verifying that their three submissions are entirely their work, or if applicants are freelance or self-employed, that they will attach a letter from the editor of the publication or broadcaster for each submission.
