Do you have a passion for writing, or an interest in creating media content?
The Future Journalist Awards is the competition for you!
The Future Journalist Awards 2022 is your chance to showcase your talent and win some great prizes. Organised by Staffordshire University, the annual competition aims to inspire tomorrow’s journalists, bloggers, and content creators.
Do you have a passion for writing, or an interest in creating videos or podcasts? To survive and thrive in the modern world of media, today’s journalists have to embrace digital technology.
Select a topic that interests you, or something you’re passionate about. Choose between submitting a piece of written content, such as an article, review or blog, or creating a short video or audio clip using a smartphone. We can only accept individual not group entries.

There will be three winners per age category:
- Best written content
- Best vlog
