The Europe & Me Young Journalist Award

The Europe & Me Young Journalist Award is giving young people the chance to win cash prize, online publication, and an invitation to a journalism workshop in Berlin or Hamburg for writing about Europe in a fresh, personal and transnational way.

 

Who can apply:

Young journalists under 30 years old, from the European Union, partner and neighbouring countries, who are not professionally employed as journalists.

 

How:

They will have to write journalistic articles of 1500–2000 words, on any European topic as long as it’s approached transnationally (in a way that makes it directly relevant to at least two European countries).

 

Possible topics could be:

1. Migration reversed – will the young generation leave Europe behind?

2. Erasmus Love – how transnational dating makes Europe a better place!

3. Generation internship – is Europe throwing away its potential?

4. How the EU became the ECB-U, the ESM-U and the EMF-U – and what this means for European democracy.

5. Yugoslavia, k. &. k., & Co. reloaded – what can Europe learn from multiethnic realms in the past?

6. Srebrenica, Sirte, Ghuta – why there is no such thing as a European foreign policy, and why there should be.

7. Growing up in the countryside – is Europe good for everybody?

 

Prizes:

The first prize entry will be awarded €500, two runners-up will receive €150 each. All three finalists will be invited to a journalism workshop scheduled to be held in Berlin or Hamburg, 2014. All shortlisted articles will be published online in a special edition of E&M magazine.

 

Deadline:

Interested entrants will have to submit a brief CV to award@europeandme.eu by 25 November 2013 (midnight, CET).
