How are the media influencing political and social debate in Europe and thus also the current bad mood between some European countries? That is the object of this year's M100 Young European Journalists Workshop that invites 20 young journalists from Europe (including non-EU countries) from 1 to 6 September 2013 to Potsdam. The six-day workshop will discuss how the media in different countries is reporting on Europe, the positions it takes, does it really reflect the mood of the population and how different branches of the media in several countries report on the same topic, amongst others.
The workshop is guided by multi award-winning journalist, filmmaker and coach Christian Stahl, and takes place in cooperation with the Axel Springer Academy. In addition to an intensive debate and camera training, participants will research facts, produce videos, texts and blogs, finishing with 20 cross-media theses about Europe.
Conditions of participation:
Young journalists between 18 and 26 years old from all over Europe (including non-EU countries) can apply by submitting a short text in English and the following task: "New Media - New Europe?" Describe in a maximum of 500 words how the media can contribute to overcoming Europe's public crisis. Please include concrete references to the media situation in your home country.
Please include a brief CV (with a photo) and motivational statement in your application, stating your reasons for applying for this particular workshop (both in English). 20 participants will be selected from among the applicants and invited to Potsdam from 31 August (arrival) to 7 September 2013 (departure). The organisers of the M100 Young European Journalists Workshop will cover accommodation and board during the workshop. A travel allowance is provided. The workshop will be held in English.
Please send your application in by 1 July 2013 to Ms Sabine Sasse, firstname.lastname@example.org
