A group of up-and-coming journalists walked away with awards as Wprost magazine and the U.S. embassy in Poland wound up their 11th Competition for Young Journalists at the U.S. ambassador's Warsaw residence June 23.

The top prize went to 22-year-old Magdalena Górnicka from Opole for her piece entitled Dream On. She won an invitation to attend a course at the Missouri School of Journalism in the United States.

Bartosz Wasilewski from Malbork claimed second prize, and third prize went to Jerzy Ziemacki from Warsaw. Wasilewski won a laptop computer and Ziemacki received a digital dictaphone and a microphone.

All the winners picked up their awards from U.S. ambassador to Poland Victor Ashe, Wprost editor-in-chief Stanisław Janecki, and deputy editor-in-chief Katarzyna Kozłowska. The finalists received official invitations to take up an internship with Wprost and attend the magazine's Person of the Year 2009 gala.

In all, 83 pieces of work were submitted for the competition. Contestants were given the task of tackling the following topic: "Allies In Crisis: How America Can Help Poland on the 90th Anniversary of Establishing Diplomatic Relations and How Poland Can Help America."

Ashe praised the quality of the submissions and said the competition was a way of marking the 90 years since Poland and the United States established diplomatic relations.

Janecki congratulated the winners and encouraged young journalists to report with courage and look at life with a critical eye.

The winners were chosen by a panel of judges including Wprost staff members and U.S. embassy employees. The award-winning papers will soon be made available for viewing at "citizen journalism" website InfoTuba.pl.
Polish Radio 1 was a media partner of the competition.
