Deadline: January 31, 2021
The International University Sports Federation has opened applications for the sixth edition of the Young Reporters Programme, that will be delivered at the Chengdu 2021 FISU World University Games from 18-29 August next year. Applicants must be 19 to 25-year-old students, recent graduates in journalism/ communications/ public relations or young practicing journalists from the continents of Africa, Americas, Asia, Oceania and Europe. The selected candidates will be brought right into the middle of the Games, with full access to the competition venues and the Main Press Centre. The cost of travel, accommodation and meals will be borne by FISU and the Organising Committee.
During the programme, training will be offered in print, photo and social media reporting of live events. The Young Reporters will be required to participate in all training sessions and will be given daily multiple reporting assignments. Photographers will be required to produce written content, just as print media journalists will be required to delve in photography or produce audio-visual stories, in order to develop their all-round journalistic skills.
