Introducing the Bob Franklin Journal Article Award
About the prize
The Bob Franklin Journal Article Award
The Bob Franklin Journal Article Award, a collaboration between Journalism Studies, Journalism Practiceand Digital Journalism, seeks to recognise the article published across the three journals that best contributes to our understanding of connections between culture and society and journalism practices, journalism studies and/or digital media/new technologies.
The portfolio of journals, founded by Professor Bob Franklin, acts as a forum for the critical discussion and study of journalism, encompassing all aspects of journalism scholarship, practice and education.
One article will be shortlisted by each of the journals’ Editors-in-Chief and Associate Editors from papers published in the annual volume of the journals. All papers published in the annual volume of the journals, including by authors at all stages in their careers will be potential candidate entrants for the award. The shortlist of three articles will then be evaluated by a panel comprising key figures in the journalism studies field:
- Bob Franklin, founding Editor of Journalism Studies, Journalism Practice and Digital Journalism
- Kaori Hayashi, Professor of Media and Journalism Studies, The University of Tokyo
- Seth Lewis, Shirley Papé Chair in Emerging Media, University of Oregon
- Jane Singer, Director of Research and Professor of Innovation Journalism, The City University, London
- Herman Wasserman, Professor of Media Studies and Director of the Centre for Film and Media Studies, The University of Cape Town
