  1. Last chance to send your entry in for the Concentra Award!! The deadline date is Januari 7th!
    In the last few weeks of 2007 the jury for the Concentra awards was finalized with the last two members confirmed for the 10-person team. Simon Bucks from Sky News, and Steve Taschini from the BBC complete the line-up of a very experienced and diverse group of news professionals from broadcast, print and online. While initial jury deliberations will be made individually, the group will meet to decide the final winners in Brussels at the beginning of March. The award will be presented on the evening of March 3rd at the Brussels Marriott as part of DNA2008.
