Entries are now open for the Young Journalist Award – It has given a boost to some brilliant journalists over the years, each one of them demonstrating a rich tapestry of investigative journalism, exposing social issues and holding power to account.

This year’s award will be extra special for another reason, too. It will be the first time in two years that their three finalists will be able to attend the glittering ceremony in London in person. The pandemic of the past two years has meant finalists could only attend virtually.
