Get creative and win an Easter cruise in the Med

Dec
02

Unlikely as it sounds, CfJ students are being urged to enter a writing competition that could win them a Mediterranean cruise for two.

John Honeywell, editor of World of Cruising magazine, is asking students from accredited journalism courses to submit 450 words on what they would expect to find on board a cruise ship. The only condition is that you have never previously been on a cruise holiday.

25

A by-election of national signficance brought many of the country's top political journalists to Rochester and Strood during November.

It was an opportunity too good to miss for Centre for Journalism students, who elbowed their way into some of the glitziest media scrums ever seen in the Medway Towns to report on the historic battle between Ukip and the Conservatives.

At stake was not just the chance to go shoulder-to-shoulder with Nick Robinson, but also the prospect of cash prizes in our election coverage competition.
