Final Deadline for Third Year NCTJ Portfolios is Monday May 13

The absolute final deadline by which any third years wishing to submit an NCTJ portfolio is Monday May 13. I will not mark any portfolios submitted after this date. The portfolios MUST be submitted in absolute finished form, with all the right sheets filled in, work experience forms at the back filled in (both - yours and your news editor's), word document versions of pieces signed off by tutors or editors, audio/video submissions in playable format as I will NOT come chasing after you for more work on incomplete or unfinished portfolios.
