EU calls on aspiring journalist to train in Brussels
Training opportunity: journalism students and young journalists invited to apply!
The European Commission has announced that it has launched a call for journalism students and young journalists to participate in Youth4Regions, an EU program for budding journalists that includes a week of training in Brussels.
37 journalism students and young journalists will be selected to come to Brussels for a week in October 2023 to follow trainings, receive mentorship from experienced journalists, work together with the latter in the pressroom and visit the EU institutions and media organizations. Applications are accepted under three categories (three categories: general, photojournalism and video journalism) from EU Member States, neighbouring and accession countries.
The application form and the conditions for participation are available on the programme’s webpage (https://youth4regions.euregionsweek.eu/) until 10 July 2023. The Commission will cover all programme participation costs for the participants.
The winners will also compete for the Megalizzi - Niedzielski Prize for budding journalists, which will be awarded on 11 October 2023.
Youth4Regions is the European Commission programme helping journalism students and young journalists to discover what the EU is doing in their region. Over 170 people from across Europe have completed the programme since its start in 2017.
