The National Council for the Training of Journalists has unveiled the shortlist for its annual awards.
The NCTJ Awards for Excellence recognise the best students completing NCTJ-accredited courses and journalists/photographers with less than two years’ experience on the job.
The awards are across five categories: news journalism; sports journalism; top scoop/exclusive; features of the year; and images of the year.
Two awards – one for students and one for trainees – are made in each category. A total of 14 students and 15 trainees have been shortlisted from more than 100 entrants.
The shortlist is available on the NCTJ’s website.
