Our Future Journalism Stars Competition is back! 

Do you want to write and create your own content?

We are looking for the next Journalism stars. We are inviting students to enter the University of Sunderland’s competition to find the best online storytellers of 2022.  

The winner will take away an iPad and money-can’t-buy journalism experience at the University of Sunderland’s Media Centre. 


For all the details and a chance to meet our academics and gain some top tips from our industry experts, come along to our online launch event on 14th September. During this event our accredited journalists will show students how to create their own wordpress website in a free online masterclass.  


The University of Sunderland wants competition entrants to create content on a subject they’re passionate about. They will receive one-to-one advice on how to make amazing content with a dedicated professional mentor from our Journalism, Sports Journalism or Fashion Journalism courses.  

For a chance to win, all you need to do is:

• Set up a free website

• Choose a subject you are passionate about, such as sport, fashion, music, sustainability, movies 

• Find your voice by uploading at least five articles 

• Add in images, videos or embed Tik Tok and YouTube videos 

• Get one-to-one feedback from our journalism team 

Last year’s competition winner won an iPad and experienced a day in the MediaHub where she got to write and publish her own content. You can view this here. She has since applied to study Journalism at the University of Sunderland and will begin her course in September!
