A last-minute call has gone out to young journalists and regional newspapers to bowl over the judges of a prestigious sporting competition.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is inviting entries for the County Cricket Journalism Awards 2014 supported by The Times newspaper

The awards, now in their fourth year, are designed to recognise outstanding contributions towards the coverage of domestic cricket during the 2014 county season.

The Times will fund a £5,000 scholarship for the Young Journalist of the Year to report on an overseas cricket event involving English county teams.

Other categories in which awards are made to recognise outstanding coverage of county cricket are: Regional Newspaper of the Year, National Newspaper of the Year, Best Online coverage of the Year and Christopher Martin-Jenkins Young Broadcaster of the Year award.
