This year’s Education Journalism Awards are now open for entries!
The submission deadline is Friday 16 September 2016.
These awards – now in their 12th year – aim to celebrate and promote captivating specialist education journalism from pre-school through to adult education and across local, national and international reporting.
They attract entries from established specialist education correspondents, those breaking into the sector and influential commentators.
“The awards shine a light on the top talent in the industry and the abilities of exceptional journalists to hold policy-makers, business and education institutions to account.”
~ Simon Butt-Bethlendy, Chair, CIPR Education and Skills Group.
