2018 Daily Mail Scholarships

I'm very pleased to be able to confirm that Associated Newspapers have agreed to award two Daily Mail Scholarships in the Centre this year: a postgraduate scholarship for one student studying the MA in Multimedia Journalism and an undergraduate scholarship for one final year student on the BA in Journalism.

Each scholarship is worth £5,000 and the chance to do work experience at the Daily Mail. Winning one of these awards gives you a unique opportunity to make yourself known to a top employer. One of last year’s winners works as a reporter at the Daily Mail.

How can you win?  Contestants should submit an original news story of not fewer than 550 words and not more than 1000 words suitable for publication in the print edition of the Daily Mail. All submissions to be submitted to Nicola's office by noon on Tuesday 8th May 2018. Each submission should be accompanied by a cover sheet giving your name, the degree for which you are studying and a telephone number at which you can be reached.

Plainly you need to read the print edition of the Daily Mail and to make yourself familiar with its style and editoriual agenda. Note, please, that the requirment is for an original news story, not a comment piece or feature. For additional advice, please feel free to consult me, Angela,  Ian, Rob or Ron. Good luck!  

Placements at Peston on Sunday

As Kishan explained during his excellent session in the newsroom, there is a chance for two students from the Centre to spend a little time at Peston on Sunday.

To secure this superb opportunity, you should send Kishan and me one side of A4 setting out what you think of one edition of Pesaton on Sunday (this week's or next) and some suggestions for improvement.

Add a couple of paragraphs about yourself and, curcially, why you think you wopuld do a good job at PoS.

Kishan's e-mail address is kishan dot koria at itv dot com and you probably know that I am T.Luckhurst@kent.ac.uk
