Education opportunity for young journalists
Application closing date extended to Thursday, June 30, 2016
The Young Rural & Regional Journalist Professional Development Award is an initiative of the Royal Agricultural & Horticultural Education Foundation of SA and Rural Media SA.
It is supported by our media mentor partners The Advertiser, ABC Rural, The Stock Journal and Channel 7.
The award began in 2013. Past winners include Rhiannon Koch (Yorke Peninsula Country Times), Skye Hoklas (Naracoorte Herald) and Vanessa Binks (West Coast Sentinel).
The objectives of the Award are to assist you in the professional development of your young journalists and to encourage coverage of the activities of your local SA Country Show.
Winners receive $1000 and a further $500 is provided to the employer to assist with the journalist’s absence while they are in Adelaide learning from their chosen media mentor during the Adelaide Show. Please support this important SA education initiative by encouraging your staff to participate.
