Calling all aspiring London citizen journalists

London Voices Journalism Competition (
The 2018 London Voices Citizen Journalism competition is now open. In its second year, the competition encourages all Londoners to have a go at journalism – whether this is written, video, audio or photography.

London is the most diverse and distinctive city in the world, and it needs more stories and reporters that reflect this. There are so many communities and issues that never get heard, and this competition encourages and promotes those hidden voices, and challenges the ways that Londoners think about their communities.

London Voices is all about developing and inspiring the next generation of professional and citizen journalists, helping to make sure that both the news and those that report on it are as diverse and distinctive as London itself.

Entries are invited from anyone over the age of 14 who lives, works or studies in London. No experience is required, just an enthusiasm for telling a story!

The competition is also a great way to learn about journalism. With support from a range of universities, media organisations and news websites, there are some great prizes on offer alongside a range of workshops and resources for beginners and those just starting out.

Entries to the competition can be in a variety of formats including print, video, or audio, or telling a story through photo journalism. The deadline is 21st May. Details of the competition can be found at
