Call for Journalism Now Scholar Competition

Deadline: 13 December, 2019


The Thomson Foundation seeks applicants for its new Journalism Now Scholar competition. Contestants will take seven of our CPD-accredited online courses including Mobile Journalism, Social Media news gathering, Journalism Across Multiple Platforms, and Data Journalism, and will work on one or more stories that you will publish.


After completing seven Journalism Now online courses successfully, contestants will attend or watch the replay of up to four webinars with Ewen MacAskill and publish a multimedia story. For its list of free and paid-for courses, you can click here. The best student will be chosen as the winner.


The highest performer will also be invited on an all-expenses-paid trip to London to attend the 2020 Thomson Foundation five-week summer course, which includes a mixture of masterclasses, workshops and practical training and a week’s placement at a leading UK media organisation. A small number of top performers will also be acknowledged on our website and social media.


Deadline to complete the Scholar programme: Friday, 13th December, 2019
