Trainee of the year award winner

NQJ awards

The NQJ awards are presented to the top-performing trainees in the National Qualification in Journalism (NQJ) exams each year.

Presented at the end of each academic year, the winners in each subject will receive a cash price of £750 from the award sponsor.

Awards up for grabs:

  • Media law and ethics in practice award, sponsored by Reviewed & Cleared
  • Practical journalism skills award, sponsored by Esso
  • E-logbook award, sponsored by Newsquest
I am absolutely delighted to have received this award. The NQJ is something that I’ve wanted to achieve since joining the industry, so to have been recognised and awarded best logbook in the country is a huge career highlight.
Jim Scott, e-logbook award winner 2021
