Awards for Excellence deadline extended

The deadline for entries to this year’s NCTJ Awards for Excellence has been extended by two weeks. NCTJ students and trainees now have until 5pm on Friday 27 September to submit their entries.

The awards recognise and reward the best journalism students completing NCTJ-accredited courses and trainee journalists/photographers with less than two years' experience on the job. With quality training and high standards at the heart of the NCTJ, these awards highlight the achievements of individuals with promising journalism careers ahead of them.

The awards, now in their sixth year, are free to enter and consist of six categories:

  • News journalism
  • Sports journalism
  • Top Scoop/Exclusive
  • Features of the Year
  • Images of the Year
  • Student Publication of the Year

After the 27 September deadline, entries will be judged by a panel of industry experts and the winners will be presented at the NCTJ Journalism Skills Conference in Bournemouth in November 2013.
