Archant to sponsor video journalism award

Regional publisher Archant will sponsor a new award for the best performance in the National Council for the Training of Journalists’ video journalism exam.

The exam is designed to enable trainees to produce short, focused video reports for use online on news websites.

Archant chief executive, Adrian Jeakings, said: “We are delighted to be able to sponsor this new award as it highlights an important element of what we can offer readers of our news websites.”

NCTJ chief executive Joanne Butcher said it was wonderful that Archant was supporting young talent. The winning student will receive a certificate and cheque for £250 from Archant.
