Application Deadline:  16th August, 2019

The 2019 Young Journalist Award is open! Now in its seventh year, the award – in partnership with the UK Foreign Press Association – is Thomson Foundation’s annual journalism competition dedicated to finding and inspiring ambitious journalists from across the globe.

Concern over the growing threat to the safety of journalists is at the heart of an international campaign to defend media freedom.

Led by the UK and Canadian governments, the aim is to shine a global spotlight on free media and increase the cost to those that are attempting to restrict it. The campaign culminates in the Global Conference for Media Freedom in London on 10th and 11th July, 2019, which brings together global leaders and representatives from the media industry, journalists, civil society and academia.



The conference, which Thomson Foundation is attending, is timely as we launch our prestigious Young Journalist Award and highlight the work of three former winners – from Sudan, Syria and Russia – who, by their courage and determination, work tirelessly to root out the truth and hold the powerful to account.

Requirements:

Journalists working in the developing world are invited to succeed Russian investigative reporter, Alisa Kustikova, as the Thomson Foundation Young Journalist Award winner.

If you are a journalist aged 30 and under working in a country with a Gross National Income (GNI) of less than $20,000, you are eligible to enter the award.

Young Journalist Award: How to enter

We’re inviting entries for the prestigious Thomson Foundation Young Journalist Award on the day we attend the Global Conference for Media Freedom.

This is the seventh year of the award, in partnership with the UK Foreign Press Association, dedicated to finding and inspiring ambitious young journalists from across the globe. Judges of the award look for stories that are revelatory, prompt public debate and have led to, or have the potential to lead to, positive change in society.

Closing date: 16th August, 2019
