The John Schofield Trust set up the RTS Young Journalist of the Year Award in 1996 in memory of John.
The Trust also funds the bursary of £1,000 which accompanies the award.
The award, which was renamed the Young Talent of the Year Award in 2014, is for the best work during the year by an on- or off-screen journalist under the age of 30 (on the last day of the 12-month period from which entries are invited).
Many of the past winners have since progressed to become well known operators within the news industry.
