There's now just over a week before the closing date of the inaugural BBC College of Journalism innovation award for postgraduate journalism students. We've been very impressed by the standard of entries already received and look forward to seeing more over the next 10 days or so.

What's been so interesting is the range of different and experimental techniques being used by students to find, verify and tell their stories. The tools and skills needed to be genuinely innovative are changing and evolving all the time. It's fantastic to see this in action, producing first class journalism.

The award will be presented by a distinguished panel of judges at the BBC College of Journalism's Connecting Communities conference in Salford on 24th May.

The winner and all shortlisted entries will have their work shown on BBC College of Journalism website. You can find the details of how to enter here.
