DAVID WELCH STUDENT SPORTSWRITER OF THE YEAR COMPETITION 2018
How to enter:
The competition is open to all students aged between 16-25 currently in full-time education at school, college or university.
All entrants must submit three pieces of writing no longer than 600 words each. They must be on the subject of sport and should take a wide-ranging form. Specifically:
1. Report of sporting event (could be hang-gliding, boccia, dressage, as well as the more conventional targets, football, rugby, cricket. Colour, detail and humour welcome.)
2. A blog, opinion, feature, interview on any subject either tightly or loosely relevant to sport.
3. A Sporting Top 10. Can be straightforward like the Top 10 Performances in Rio or something far more oblique and personal. It should be an interesting or provocative selection, each of the 10 justified in short 50-70 word captions.
At least one of these three entries MUST be on the subject of women’s sport – exploits of the England Women’s cricket, rugby and football teams, the 4x100m relay team, Hannah Cockcroft, Elise Christie, and more, in 2017.
The entries must be emailed* to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday 4th February 2018 .
