ITV News has teamed up with the Media Trust to search for the next generation of top broadcast journalists.

We're looking for young talent to take part in Breaking Into News 2012, an initiative that offers 18-25 year olds the opportunity to be mentored by experienced ITV journalists in writing, presenting and production skills.

Finalists will have the chance to develop their ideas and create a news report for their local ITV newsroom. Each report will be considered for broadcast and be presented to a panel of judges who will decide upon an overall winner. That individual will have the opportunity to spend a day with ITV's News at Ten production team and will also be presented with an iPad.

The deadline for applications is Monday 5 November 2012 at midday.
