Tell us why you should win
You’ll need to submit a short description about yourself and your background, what you’d like your report to focus on and why you deserve the opportunity. Six finalists will be selected to spend four days based at ITV News and with the support of their mentor will produce their own news report.
Each finalist will present their finished reports to a high-profile judging panel including ITV News managers, Mark Austin, Julie Etchingham and executives from Media Trust. The winner will be given the chance to work alongside the ITV News at Ten team for a day, be presented with an iPad to help with future projects, and the chance to have their final piece considered for inclusion on an ITV News platform.
Closing date 12pm Monday 8 August. Please read the terms and conditions.
