MHP announces 2017’s Young Journalist Awards: 30 to Watch

MHP Communications is holding its annual awards, which celebrate the UK’s best young journalists, on 25 May 2017.

The awards will be presented by former ‘30 to Watch’ Gold winner Sophy Ridge who has gone on to become an established media industry name.

Free to enter, the only entry criteria is that nominees must be under the age of 30 and working full time in any aspect of the UK media.

MHP’s own media specialists led by Ian Kirby, former political editor of The News of the World and Adam Batstone, former assistant editor at BBC News, are on the judging panel.

They are joined by external judges Camilla Mankabady, output editor ITV News at Ten, Dave Wooding, political editor of The Sun on Sunday and another 30 to Watch Gold winner, Peter Campbell of the Financial Times.

Ian Kirby, head of media at MHP, said: “The Young Journalist Awards are a fantastic celebration of this country’s rising media stars. Our list of former winners is a roll call of the brightest and the best and I’m particularly pleased that winners like Sophy Ridge and Peter Campbell continue to support 30 to Watch.”
