James Cameron Memorial Lecture and Award
When James Cameron died in 1986, a Trust was set up in his memory to award an annual prize to a journalist whose work in the previous year had been "in the Cameron tradition". An annual memorial lecture was also established.
In the following 25 years, Cameron Award winners have included Michael Buerk, John Simpson, Bridget Kendall, Fergal Keane, Lindsay Hilsum and Gary Younge.
The James Cameron Memorial Lecture has been delivered by a distinguished group of speakers including Ben Bradlee, Michael Grade, Alan Rusbridger, Tony Benn, Greg Dyke and Sir Max Hastings.
Professor Hugh Stephenson organised the lectures and chaired the judging panel from the inaugural lecture in 1987 to 2010. From 2011 this was taken over jointly by Professor Howard Tumber and Professor George Brock.
