The Thomson Foundation is celebrating 60 years of promoting excellence in journalism and to mark the occasion we’re offering six rising stars the chance to connect with six of the best journalists in the industry as part of our prestigious Young Journalist Award 2022. This year’s award will be extra ordinary for this reason, it will be the first time in two years that the three finalists will be able to attend the glittering ceremony in London in person. The pandemic of the past two years has made finalists to only attend virtually.

In addition, to mark 60 years of the foundation, the three finalists as well as the next three highest in the shortlist will have the opportunity to be mentored for six months by six established journalists from the alumni.
