IPSE Young Freelancer Year Award

In more Masterclass news, we are delighted to see that an alumnus of the first Masterclass cohort in 2019, Liam O’Dell, won Young Freelancer of the Year at the IPSE Freelancer Awards for his work on the campaign to have a British Sign Language Interpreter at government briefings.

IPSE is searching for the most talented self-employed people in the UK who are under 30 to enter our IPSE Young Freelancer Year Award. This award is about celebrating the achievements of people who have made the jump into freelancing at an early age and are already a success.

Liam O’Dell

Liam O'Dell is an award-winning deaf and disabled journalist, and an alumnus of the first #CIJMasterclass cohort in 2019. While Liam began freelancing in 2016, it was in 2020 that he took things seriously, and he believes in the year and a half since then, that he's consistently produced work that not only reports on the present, but has a long-term impact on the future of marginalised communities and large-scale social media companies.
