ICRC Young Reporter Competition

ICRC Young Reporter Competition – call for applications

Ready for a humanitarian experience? The ICRC invites you to discover for yourself what is happening in the field, and in particular, how young people are dealing on a daily basis with the reality of armed conflict or other situations of violence.

Participate in the ICRC Young Reporter Competition and get an inside look at the ICRC’s humanitarian action, in collaboration with national Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. The four best entries will win a one-week mission to ICRC delegations in Georgia, Lebanon, Liberia and the Philippines. You will get to interview young people affected by armed conflict or other situations of violence and have a chance to report back to your peers, using your own words and creative talents. With the guidance and coaching of an ICRC communication specialist, selected candidates will produce a news report on their mission—in print or film—to be published and/or shown in a variety of media outlets. The finished products will be presented during a ceremony held in Geneva, Switzerland, around May 8, 2011.

We hope you will seize this opportunity to report to the world on issues affecting young people. We look forward to receiving your application and wish each and every one of you the very best of luck.
