The Janno Media Award

Thanks to the generosity of Janno Media, the Janno Media Award has been created to support final year students on BA Hons Broadcast Journalism with their project. The award is intended to help support students creating podcast content.

Students must create an 8-10 part series, which will then be issued weekly for at least two months by Janno Media. We are delighted to offer a bursary worth up to £5,000 alongside a loan of field recording equipment up to the value of £1,500.

This award is extremely competitive and we will award the bursary to the applicant who most closely meets or exceeds the criteria for the award. The decision is made by an awarding committee and all decisions of that awarding committee are final.

Eligibility criteria

    Must be a current final year student on BA Hons Broadcast Journalism (P500)

    There is one award available of up to £5,000, to be paid as a cash bursary. In addition, students can get a loan of field recording equipment up to the value of £1,500 to support their final year project. The equipment provided is to be used exclusively for the delivery of the project work for which they have received the award. The award must be used to create podcast content which forms part of an 8-10 part series.

    Applicants will be asked to submit a list of costs and equipment they expect to incur in order to deliver their project successfully – this will be used to determine the amount awarded to the successful applicant.
