Media Trust and ITV opens submissions for its Breaking into News competition.
Communications charity Media Trust has teamed up with ITV News to launch Breaking into News, a nationwide competition to search for ITV’s next up and coming broadcast journalist.
The initiative was founded eight years ago and aims to promote diversity in broadcast journalism.
Fronted by journalists Charlene White and Ria Chatterjee, Breaking Into News is now open to everyone of all ages and backgrounds and welcomes individuals with little or no media experience.
Ten shortlisted applicants across the UK will be paired with an experienced ITV journalist from their region and will receive mentoring over six weeks in areas such as reporting and production.
“Breaking into News is your opportunity to dive into a world of storytelling,” commented ITV Ambassador Ria Chatterjee.
“Your opportunity to be part of a team of reporters, producers, camera operators and editors who work tirelessly to tell the stories that matter.”
The overall winner will receive £400 worth of equipment and have a local news report important to them aired on ITV.
