  • Five runners up will also receive free access to Glen’s advanced mobile journalism online course from the Journalism Now programme.


  • Open to entrants aged 18 or over;
  • Only one entry per person. Entries on behalf of another person will not be accepted and joint submissions are not allowed. Thomson Foundation accepts no responsibility for entries that are delayed or incomplete or cannot be delivered or entered for any technical or other reason.
