Emily Bell, Founder Director to the Tow Centre for Digital Journalism at Columbia Graduate School of Journalism in New York City, has been announced as guest speaker for the Hugh Cudlipp Lecture 2015, taking place at London College of Communication, UAL on Monday 26 January 2015.

Established in 2005, the annual Hugh Cudlipp Lecture was created and named in memory of the late Lord Cudlipp, the former Editorial Director of the Daily Mirror and one of the great 20th century pioneers of popular tabloid journalism. Every year, the lecture – given by a high profile media professional – addresses the key developments and issues in today’s news outlets.

At the lecture, the winner of the £2000 Hugh Cudlipp Award for Student Journalism is announced. The prize is given to a student who has made an outstanding contribution to journalism. This year the award will go to the author of an article, series of articles or video that explores an issue of public interest or concern which, in the Cudlipp tradition, exemplifies lucid and graphic communication.
