The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is inviting entries from young journalists and regional newspapers for the County Cricket Journalism Awards 2014 supported by The Times.
The awards, now in their fourth year, are designed to recognise outstanding contributions towards the coverage of domestic cricket during the 2014 county season.
A new award was introduced last year – the Christopher Martin-Jenkins Young Broadcaster of the Year award – to recognize broadcasting excellence within the domestic county game.
The Young County Journalist of the Year award was also re-named after ‘CMJ’ – the former BBC Radio Test Match Special commentator and The Times cricket correspondent who died in 2013.
The Times will also fund the £5,000 scholarship which is awarded to the Young Journalist of the Year to report on an overseas cricket event involving English county teams.
The three other categories in which awards are made to recognise outstanding coverage of County cricket are: National Newspaper of the Year, Regional Newspaper of the Year and Best Online coverage of the Year.
The awards will be made by a panel of cricket writers and broadcasters based on their assessment of the season’s coverage in these categories.
Entries are invited for the Regional Newspaper of the Year Award, the Christopher Martin-Jenkins Young Broadcaster of the Year and the Christopher Martin-Jenkins Young Journalist of the Year award.
