An award for newer arts journalists with an Edinburgh connection and an international outlook has been established in memory of a writer who was a passionate campaigner for human rights, a lifelong promoter of world music, and had strong connections with Latin America.
The Jan Fairley Award 2014-15 has been created by the NUJ Edinburgh freelance branch in memory of their colleague and friend, a noted music journalist.
The judging panel will be chaired by Edinburgh university Tovey chair of music professor Simon Frith and the award ceremony will be held in January 2015.
The prize will be recognition of work, a certificate, £300 and a selection from the winning entry will be published in The Scotsman newspaper.
