The Guardian has launched the Student Media Awards 2001 – their 23rd year.

They 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.

Prizes include extended work experience at the Guardian, cash and free flights.

The top prizewinner will also receive £1,000 for the duration of their placement.

The judges promise that even on limited resources they will home in on the imagination and energy that could go on to drive a successful career.

There are 13 categories to this year’s awards.

They include student newspaper, student magazine, student reporter, student feature writer, student photographer, student publication designer, student website, student critic, student sports journalist and student travel writer.

Special awards include the Shoestring Award, for a publication with less than £5,000 funding from its union.
