Anna’s delight at awards shortlist accolade
CBJ graduate Anna Farley is in the running for a top award.
She is one of just three people on the shortlist for Best TV News Feature in the Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BJTC) Student Journalism Awards 2014.
Her feature – Under the Knife to Save a Life: The Donation Debate – featured some strong case studies that showed how desperately people need organ donations and what a difference it can make to their lives.
Anna, who graduated from BA Broadcast Journalism in July, said she was delighted to be on the shortlist.
She added: “I’m surprised, pleased and really grateful to Carole Fleming who gave me some great feedback on my ideas.”
Anna is now freelancing at Signal 107 in Wolverhampton.
There was a record level of entries from the 3,500 students studying on BJTC-accredited courses in the UK.
For the second year running the Steve Harris Award for Student Journalist of the Year will be presented to one of the winners or runners up who the judges feel has excelled beyond all other entries and has shown the most rounded multimedia ability. A £500 cash prize will accompany this award.
BJTC chief executive Jon Godel said: “Our industry judges were very impressed with the standard of the entries. They feel they have found some journalism stars of the future.”
The awards ceremony will take place on November 22 at Birmingham City University.
