Epson Student photojournalist of the year competition launched - Epson have launched a photojournalism category for Newsday 2006, the Schools Newspaper of the Year competition. Epson's photojournalism category aims to find the next big photojournalist by encouraging young photographers to use their creativity to tell a story, demonstrating the impact photography has as a form of journalism.
The prize, an Epson A3 photo-printer, will go to the school whose newspaper has made the most effective use of an original photograph to
help tell a news story or feature.
The competition typically attracts over 700 entries from primary and secondary schools. Students are given one day to create a newspaper or news portal. A panel of teachers and journalists select winners. Photographs will be judged according to their relevance, impact, colour, composition and print quality.
Drever continues: "Newsday relates closely to Epson's belief in education though technology. It is an exciting opportunity for
students, providing an opportunity for vocational learning and allowing pupils to experience first hand, a day in the life of a journalist. The
Newsday competition has been running for 14 years and has grown in popularity. We eagerly await the entries and talent the competition
