[Call for participants] European Youth Media Days 2017 – 10th anniversary

The European Youth Media Days (EYMD) is one of the hugest events in Europe devoted to young journalists. This year it will take place in the European Parliament seat in Brussels.

Participants will encounter three days of media seminars, political discussions, hands-on media production and precious insights into the European Parliament and international media milieu. They will associate with high-level European politicians, professional journalists, and experts and engage in intercultural dialogue during practical media production.

Benefits
Participants’ travel costs (specific conditions apply, more information will be given after you have been selected) will be reimbursed by the European Parliament 1 to 2 weeks after the event, upon submission of all necessary documents (forms for completion and instructions will be sent by the European Parliament prior to the event).

The European Parliament will also pay up to two per-diems of 360 Euros in total to working journalists (who need to provide a copy of their valid press card) or up to 180 Euros in total to journalism students or interns (who need to provide proof (e.g. in the form of a letter) from their university or from the organisation they are interning at) to cover accommodation, meals and local transport. The lump sums will be paid at the same time as the travel reimbursement, 1 to 2 weeks after the event.

Eligibility

The European Youth Press invites applicants to become one of the 90 young journalists (86 EU + 4 non-EU), aged between 18 and 30, who will report from the European Parliament in Brussels in the framework of European Youth Media Days (EYMD) between 16 and 18 October 2017.

The EYMD is open to young journalists who are citizens or legal residents of the EU Member States and neighboring countries as defined by the European Union.
