Future News Worldwide: Fully funded opportunity for young journalists

Future News Worldwide is a partnership programme between the British Council and some of the world’s leading media organisations, including Reuters, CNN, Facebook and Google News Initiative. It aims to identify, train and support the next generation of global journalists. More info at https://www.britishcouncil.gr/events/future-news-worldwide

We’re looking for 100 of the world’s most talented, motivated and passionate young media makers to join us for an exclusive conference taking place in London on 16 and 17 July 2019. Here, they will receive coaching from some of the world’s most high-profile editors, broadcasters, writers and reporters and will make connections with other young global journalists.

This is a fully funded opportunity. All costs involved in attending the conference, including travel to and from London, accommodation and board, will be covered by the British Council, so there is no cost at all to the successful students.

The programme is open to undergraduate and postgraduate students of any degree discipline aged 18-25, who are passionate about journalism in any form. Applications are now open via the website www.britishcouncil.org/future-news-worldwide and close on 21 March 2019.

The British Council is the United Kingdom’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities.
