Entries for the 2016 Hugh Cudlipp Award for Student Journalism are being accepted until Monday February 1, with the winner of the £1,000 prize to be announced a month later at the Hugh Cudlipp Lecture at the Museum of London.

Each year the prize is given to a student who has made an outstanding contribution to journalism.
