« The Newsroom 27 », a project financed by the European Commission and edited by Slate France
The idea is to gather 27 young European journalists (under 30) from all over the EU to draw up a panorama of EU cohesion policy. Concretely, each journalist selected will have to write one story regarding one project financed by the EU in his/her country. He/She will of course be remunerated, and the costs related to the report will be covered.
During this process, the selected candidates will benefit from the advices of professional journalists from Slate France, and will have the opportunity to learn from each other in a virtual trans-European newsroom. The stories will then be published in French, in English and in the native language of their authors, on the Slate website and in the local press, giving the young journalists access to a wide audience.
The candidates will have to send their resume, a cover letter and and at least one draft of a story linked to a project financed by the cohesion policy. The candidates will then be selected by a group of journalists from Slate. Their work shall start around the beginning of spring and be published at the end of spring.
Now you can apply to the project. The application process is open until February 15th, 2024.
