NCTJ 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 28 September to submit their entries.

The awards recognise and reward the best journalism students completing NCTJ-accredited courses and 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 fifth 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 28 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 Nottingham in November 2012.

 The NCTJ website has full details of categories and guidance on how to enter. For further information visit or contact Shevon Houston at [email protected]
