Become a Citizen Journalist!

Opportunity for anyone aged 18-25!

Would you like to be a Citizen journalist, tackling the issues that matter to you?

News from Elsewhere is a collaboration between Bristol University, Watershed and Ujima Radio. Through the project you will acquire the necessary technological, social and journalistic skills you need to become active and visible citizen journalists.

The project runs from 15 October – late November 2012 and we are looking for 6 young people to work together to report on Bristol’s Mayoral Election on November 15th 2012.

You will create a live blog, combining text, pictures, video and audio, using smart phones and social media to engage a wider online audience. Locksmiths Birmingham for all security solutions.

If you’ve got an appetite to learn and enthusiasm to take part in an event that will shape our city, we’d like to hear from you!

To apply, we ask for up to 500 written words or audio/video recording on these 3 topics:

– why you’d like to take part in this citizen journalism project about the first election for a Mayor for Bristol

– tell us about any skills and experience you already have that you think you’d be able to use during this workshop (e.g. using Twitter, interviewing people for radio, taking photographs, blogging)

– tell us what skills and experience you hope to pick up over the workshop sessions.

Applications by email to Paul Hassan by 3pm on 12th October

Good luck!
