The YJB is inviting entries to this year’s Communicating Youth Justice Award, showcasing some of the most creative and exciting work done every day in the youth justice system.
Publicising positive stories and activities through the media can increase public confidence in the youth justice system and this award celebrates the exciting and creative communications work that is carried out by youth justice practitioners across England and Wales.
BBC home editor Mark Easton will present awards to one winner and one runner up at this year's Annual Youth Justice Convention, which is taking place in Newport, South Wales, on November 23 and 24.
As an additional incentive to enter, there will be a seminar at the convention on public confidence and proactive community engagement which will give one representative from each of the shortlisted entries the opportunity to show their piece of work, and share advice on how they successfully engaged with the media, for the benefit of other attendees. This representative will attend the convention for both days free of charge.
The winner will also receive exclusive use of the YJB's winner's logo.

All entries must be submitted to the YJB by the closing date of Monday 11 October. To speak to someone at the YJB about these awards, please contact assistant media manager Emma Sloper at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 020 3372 7788.
