Epson to sponsor Newsday 2006 - Schools Newspaper of the Year competition sponsored by Epson, provider of printers and projectors to the education market

The competition, now in its 14th year, typically attracts around 700 entries ranging from primary schools to sixth form colleges across the world. Entrants are then given a day to create a newspaper or news portal for their school. Winners are selected by a panel of teachers and journalists and receive prizes that have a variety of uses within schools. This year, entrants to the competition will have the opportunity to win an Epson AcuLaser colour laser printer, Epson projector or Epson photo-printer.

To celebrate Epsons involvement, the TES Newsday 2006 will also feature, for the first time, a photojournalism category. The new category will award an A3 Epson photo-printer to the school whose newspaper has made the most effective use of original photographs to help tell a news story or feature.

Brian Robinson, Newsday 2006, said: Epson is an ideal partner for Newsday 2006. Entrants are increasingly using colour and print to create attention-grabbing publications and with Epsons dedication to colour in the classroom, the support and expertise that they will be able to share with the entrants will be very valuable.

He added: Each year we have seen the quality of photojournalism increase in the entries that are submitted. Epsons creation of the photojournalist category is perfectly timed.

Mary Drever, Education Account Manager, Epson UK, said: Its clear from the volume and quality of entries submitted each year that this competition has captured the imagination of the nations pupils. By drawing upon their ability to write, design and produce a newspaper, Newsday presents an excellent learning opportunity. We are delighted to be able to support this event and are very keen to see the entries that the photojournalist category generates.

Newsday 2006 will be launched in January at the BETT event. Schools can enter via www.newsday.co.uk and will be supported by CD Roms and information packs guiding them through the different stages of producing a newspaper. Epson will also send supporting information to those wishing to explore the possibilities of colour and print in their publications.
