WM to host the Student Journalism Awards

The Broadcast Journalism Training Council Student Journalism Awards are to be held in the West Midlands this year.

Student journalists from around the UK will gather at Birmingham City University for the awards ceremony on November 20th. It is the first time the event has been held in the city and is a celebration of the best student TV, radio and online journalism.

The BJTC, which is supported by the BBC, ITV, Sky News, ITN, Reuters, AP, Channel 4, Creative Skillset and the NUJ along with universities and colleges, has chosen Birmingham City University’s new Parkside media centre for the event.

Executive Dean at Birmingham City University, Professor David Roberts said: “All of us in the Faculty of the Arts, Design and Media are thrilled to host the annual BJTC awards ceremony. It’s a chance for us to celebrate the best in journalism education in the midst of our amazing new Parkside facilities. With the BBC’s recent announcement that its training academy is to come to Birmingham, there’s never been a better time to show the profession what our city has to offer.”

BJTC Chairman Ralph Bernard said: “We are so pleased to be bringing the BJTC Student Journalism Awards to Birmingham. It is a chance to showcase the best work from the journalists of the future.”

There are eight award categories as well as the Steve Harris Award for Student Journalist of the Year, which carries a cash prize of £500. Entries opened last month and will close on 4th September.
