Journalism students in Cardiff will have the chance to compete for a £1,000 cash prize, a high-performance driving experience day and a two-week work placement at some of the UK’s top motoring publications.
Launched by Welsh Motoring Writers in memory of John Arfon Edwards, one of the group’s founder members who passed away in 2014, the prize will be open to students at Cardiff University’s School of Journalism taking the automotive journalism module.
Cardiff’s unique Automotive Journalism module provides in-depth knowledge and skills for the next generation of transport and business writers.
Students on the course are invited to submit a piece of work from their course to the judging panel for the award. The deadline for entries is April 3 and judging will take place in April with a presentation at the end of May.
