How do you create balanced reports from conflict zones where things can change in a matter of minutes? How do you know who is telling you the truth? How can journalists get their facts right? What is the relationship between media coverage and human rights in such conflicts?
If these are questions that interest you then we invite you to apply to become one of the 60 young journalists, aged between 18 and 30, reporting from inside the European Parliament in Brussels on Oct. 18-20.
Participants will experience three days of creativity and innovation through political discussions, hands-on media workshops and invaluable insights into the European Parliament and the European media. They will interact with high-level European politicians, professional journalists and experts and engage in intercultural exchange through practical work and evening cultural activities.
Over the course of the three-day workshop, each young journalist will produce a report on the topic of the seminar through their medium of choice - audio, video, print, online or photography. The workshop is organised by the European Parliament and the European Youth Press and is open to citizens and legal residents of the EU member states.
Travel will be reimbursed by the European Parliament. Accommodation and board will be covered through a lump sum also provided by the European Parliament.
Application and deadline
Applications deadline is August 15.
Please apply by sending a CV, a motivation letter and a few media clips (of any type) to firstname.lastname@example.org . The European Youth Press aims to ensure the participation of young journalists from all 27 member states.
We look forward to meet you in the European Parliament in Brussels!
