Breaking into News 

Breaking into News is an initiative run by Media Trust, in partnership with ITV News to discover diverse new talent and identify top broadcast journalists of the future.



The competition, now in its eighth year, offers aspiring journalists with limited journalism experience from across England, Wales and Northern Ireland the opportunity to create a local news report with support and advice from experienced journalists working in ten of ITV's regional newsrooms.

Want to be mentored by a top broadcast journalist?

Dreaming of starting a career in broadcast journalism? Then Media Trust and ITV's Breaking into News competition is for you! We're looking for budding journalists from across the country that have a story to tell. You don't need any experience, just passion and a great idea for a potential news story. 

So what are you waiting for? Get your application in before Friday 5 April 2019 and we could be seeing you at an ITV newsroom near you before you know it!
