The Bob Franklin Journal Article Award

Journalism Studies, Journalism Practice and Digital Journalism

About the Prize

The Bob Franklin Journal Article Award, a collaboration between Journalism Studies, Journalism Practice and Digital Journalism, seeks to recognise the article that best contributes to our understanding of “connections between culture and society and journalism practices, journalism studies and/or digital media/new technologies.” One article will be shortlisted by each of the Journals’ Editors from papers published in the annual volume of the journal. The shortlist of three articles will then be evaluated by a panel comprising Bob Franklin and the four key figures from the Journalism Studies field. Articles must be written in the English language.

Submissions Information

The Editor in Chief and three Associate Editors construct a ‘long-shortlist’ of the best papers published in their journals which they eventually reduce to a single ‘top’ paper for each journal. A final best paper is chosen from this shortlist of three articles by a panel of senior scholars and academics from the journalism studies field which currently comprises of:

  • 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
