The School will take place on February 28 — March 1 in L'viv, and will be dedicated to the relations between the EU, Ukraine and Russia.
The participants will be selected on a competitive basis. Students of 4th and 5th year of humane and socioeconomic disciplines as well as aspiring journalists up to 28 years old can apply for the contest. Participants who already have publications on the topics of international politics and EU integration will be favored. The detailed information on contest terms and conditions is here.
The School participants will be split into 6 mini-editorial teams. Each will be guided by a mentor — a journalist coach. He or she will consult the aspiring journalists and give advice on how to write a high-quality article within a specified topic.
Each participant needs to create their own journalistic article during the School time. They will be able to use information from sessions of Ukrainian and international experts, politicians and diplomates invited to the School, or ask them for exclusive commentaries.
While at the School, the participants are expected to gain and practice the skills of communicating with experts, politicians and diplomates; collecting information; working “afield”; the ability to analyze the information gathered and get the articles ready right away, while the event is still happening.
The first School of International Journalism was held in September 2013, and was dedicated to the issues of Ukraine's European integration. You can check out the participants' works here.
6 authors of the best articles written within the School activity have visited the Vilnius Summit and were covering it for the Zaxid.net website. Overall they've created 22 articles you can find here.
