At the 2017 lecture, this year given by Jim Naughtie, the winner of the £1000 Hugh Cudlipp Award for Student Journalism will be announced.
The prize is given to a student who has made an outstanding contribution to journalism for an article, or series of articles, or video*, exploring an issue of public interest or concern which, in the Cudlipp tradition, exemplifies lucid and graphic communication to a wide audience.
