Coolpolitics in Portugal announces [pt] an open call for European journalists who want to go on a reporting trip to Brazil in 2014. Twenty-one young reporters from Portugal, The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, United Kingdom and Bulgaria will be selected to take part of three different groups that will cover events in Brazil, before and after the World Cup, while collaborating with Brazilian peers.
The Beyond Your World website explains the application process and the expected outcomes of this international reporting and training opportunity:
Ongoing demonstrations, the upcoming World Cup, preparations for the Olympic Games and approaching elections; 2014 is considered to be a very important year for Brazil. Consequently, many beautiful stories are out there and are waiting to be covered. Beyond Your World would likes to make a big contribution with this special project. We want to take this incredible opportunity to explore and tell stories in and from Brazil, not only by giving young journalists the chance to gain experience overseas, but also enabling them to work together with colleagues from different countries.
Deadline for applications is on January 10, 2014. This project – a cooperation between Lokaalmondiaal and the Brazilian media organisation Canal Futura – is part of the training program Beyond Your World which “seeks to inspire and enable the next generation of journalists to cover international development issues”.
