National Awards

Every year, the best article, photo and video of every age category are selected by the national jury.  The local winners are chosen by the end of April, when they are sent to the international jury for classification.

Judging will be in the following age categories. It is the participant’s age on the day their piece was submitted to the national competition that must be given:             

(Press Kids) 7 – 10

11-14

15-18

19+

Local winners are given certificates and gifts, and are given the awards during the annual seminar which will be held in November of each year.  The same winning articles are published in the local papers and students are invited to local TV and radio programmes to discuss their investigations.  

Winners are also invited by The Press Club Malta to spend a day with the press, experiencing the work schedule of journalists and photographers.  The local winners getting international awards are also presented with a trophy, which the school keeps as recognition of the award.

Teachers and members of the SMT who help in the running of the programme are also given recognition certificates and gifts. 

Opportunities to visit other YRE participants abroad are also in the pipeline. 

International Awards

Apart from the above mentioned incentives, students who manage to get international awards are presented with an internationally recognised certificate by FEE, and have their entries published in the annual YRE book.
