Details of student journalism awards announced

The 2002 Guardian Student Media Awards have been announced, as the contest enters its 24th year.

The event is to recognise the diverse student journalism talent, with prizes for writers, photographers and editors.

The judges will take into account energy and imagination put into the work – no matter what kind of publication the entrants are involved with.

Prizes include money, work experience at the Guardian and European flights courtesy of Easy-Jet.

The awards are open to people who’ve spent time at university getting valuable experience in journalism – and could give them the step up to the big time. Past winners include Andrew Rawnsley, the Observer journalist and broadcaster, Heat editor Mark Frith and Guardian columnist Jonathan Freedland.

Categories this year include:

  • Student newspaper of the year
  • Student magazine of the year
  • Student reporter of the year
  • Student feature writer of the year
  • Student photographer of the year
  • Student publication design of the year
  • Student website of the year
  • Student critic of the year
  • The small budget publication of the year
  • Student sports writer of the year
  • The diversity award
  • Student travel writer of the year
  • Student columnist of the year

    Judges will select one overall winner from the winners in each category. The overall winner will have an extended six-week work placement at the Guardian and Guardian Unlimited and a subsistence award of £1,000 will be provided for the placement.
