Video journalism the "it" thing at the moment.
Is there a new style set to emerge?
Will its maturity yield a new taxonomy?
Are the rules of video journalism specific to regions?
Do you need to put stand ups in the form?
And how can Vjism bring about a more expansive, credible, and innovative form of journalism in the wake of media closures?
While these specifics may not be answered, the entrants to the VJ Awards 2008/9 may give some clue to video journalism's maturity and direction.
The competition closes on the 1st of December from its already extended deadline. Your chance to win some cash and get noticed, but you'd better hurry with less than 24 hours to go.
