To celebrate and support the development of citizen journalism in London, The Media Society and London Learning Consortium have launched a competition called  London Voices. The competition aims to encourage Londoners to give citizen journalism a go – written words, audio or video articles, photos or online.

Entry is free and everyone who registers for the competition will also get a free Media Interviewing course worth £50. All London-based aspiring citizen journalists are encouraged to register and enter, regardless of previous experience. Winners will get awards of up to £2,000, and have the chance to meet a range of media and journalism professionals.”
