Thomson Foundation Young Journalist FPA Award

Deadline: 29 August 2014

Region: Worldwide

Thomson_Foundation_Young_JournalistThe Thomas Foundation is funding a prize which recognises young journalists, who work in the developing world, for the 2014 UK Foreign Press Association Awards. Applicants must be aged 30 and under, from a developing country.

They must submit a portfolio of three pieces of work, which must have been published or broadcast on or after 29 August 2013. The work can be in any format – print, audio, video, multimedia or a combination of all four.

Last year’s winner, Judy Kosgei from Kenya, reported on the lack of sanitary towels for schoolgirls in rural Kenya. This report sparked a campaign which helped 10,000 girls get a year’s supply of sanitary towels.

The deadline for entries is 29 August 2014.
