This award is for the journalist from a non-white ethnic minority background who has most impressed the judges this year. It is only for journalists who do not have a news organisation able to pay their entry fee who have entered under this year’s free entry scheme. Entrants can’t directly submit an entry for this category. All of our non-white applicants who submitted an entry in another category and benefited from the diversity free entry scheme will be entered into the Barbara Blake Hannah Award – this award is intended to reward up and coming journalists who like her are breaking through barriers with their journalism. Barbara was the UK’s first black female newsreader. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you do not wish to be considered for this award.
