During Cycle 5 of the 2022 Press Service International (PSI) young writer program in conjunction with Christian Today, each young writer selects their ‘BEST’ article.
Their ‘BEST” article selection is sent in - in order for the 5 specific panellists to mark the articles for the 2022 Young Writer Annual Awards.
Obviously there are different sections
New Zealand 18-30
Australian Over 31s
Internationals Over 31
Young Seniors - Aust, NZ, Internationals
For this to work smoothly, each group has a Connect person - who collates the articles and in a pack - sends them to their respective 5 panellists.
Rebecca Moore - Aust 18-30
Mussita Ng - NZ 18-30
Aira Chilcott - Intn’ls 18-30
Jeremy Dover - sport writers
Vicki Nunn - Over 31s
Russell Modlin - Seniors
The question is always - what is a young writer’s BEST article - it is what the young writer thinks if their best written, or best thinking, or best ideas - or even what they might perceive what the panellists might warm to.
These are questions that determine some considerable thought - each young writer will weigh up what they perceive to be the most poignant.
There is not enough space to list all the Basil Sellers Awards since 2013.
This site provides the lists and the videos
The first video is from 2021 when Russell Modlin and Rebecca Moore videoed the 2021 annual young writer awards.
Each year there is much anticipation and excitement with the annual young writer awards.
