Join The FSA

Aspiring journalist? Then we want to hear from you…

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

The Football Supporters’ Federation (FSF) and Kick It Out are giving aspiring journalists the chance to earn two paid freelance contracts in a competition launched through their joint ‘Fans for Diversity’ campaign.

The ‘Fans for Diversity’ campaign, headed up by Dagenham and Redbridge legend Anwar Uddin, launched in March 2014 and encourages fan-led activity in promoting inclusivity, equality and diversity through the power of football.

The freelance contracts cover the submission of five written articles each for a total of £500 per person, and will include reporting on ‘Fans for Diversity’ events and putting together comment pieces focusing on the work of Kick It Out and the FSF.

The deadline for final submissions is Friday 20th March 2015. CVs are also required to accompany entries. Once the deadline has passed, six candidates will be selected to enter the final stage.

An interview process will then be led by a panel of judges, made up of representatives from the FSF and Kick It Out, plus two national newspaper journalists, to select the winning entries.

A mentor will also be assigned to each of the winners so that they can seek advice and guidance. Those entries which do not win the competition will be taken into consideration for publication on www.fsf.org.uk and www.kickitout.org.

How do I enter?

To enter the competition, send in a 600-800 word comment piece which focuses on the themes of football, fans and diversity, and references the work of the ‘Fans for Diversity’ campaign.

If you would like to find out more about the competition, please feel free to call Kick It Out on 0207 253 0162.

Best of luck to everybody that enters!
