Breaking Into News competition for young people

Breaking Into News is run by Media Trust in partnership with ITV News, the competition offers people the chance to write and create your own news story about a local issue that they are passionate about.

Ten finalists, one from each ITV News region, will be selected and given the opportunity to work with top industry mentors to develop their own ideas and turn them into a news report for their local ITV newsroom. Each report may have the chance to be aired on an ITV News platform.

The overall winner will also win £400 worth of journalistic equipment.

The programme would suit those who have recently finished education, have limited media or broadcasting experience and have a keen interest in journalism.
