The European Commission launched the 2020 edition of the Youth4Regions competition for aspiring young journalists. Youth4Regions is a programme to help journalism students and young journalists discover what the EU is doing in their region.
As of today, they can apply to participate in the eponymous competition, and based on their application, 33 winners will be selected. They will be invited to Brussels during the EU Week for Regions and Cities expected to take place in October 2020, where they will be able to follow trainings, receive mentorship from established journalists, work together with the latter in the pressroom and visit the EU institutions and media organisations.
Successful applicants will also be considered for the Megalizzi – Niedzielski prize for aspiring journalists.
Applications are welcomed from EU Member States, neighbouring and accession countries.
