The applications are open for Future News Worldwide 2020, an international conference for the next generation of journalists run by the British Council in partnership with some of the world's leading media organisations.
A total of 100 fully-funded places are available for the brightest young student bloggers, vloggers, photojournalists and reporters from across the globe to take part in the two-day event at Sky Central — the global headquarters of the Sky Group in Isleworth, London in July 2020.
Future News Worldwide 2020 will offer an equally rich and packed programme for the next generation of newsmakers and content creators. Judging by last year’s entries, which saw over 3000 applications received, competition for places will be strong.
The opportunity is available to undergraduate and postgraduate students from any country who are between 18-25 years as of July 1, 2020. Applicants should be able to speak English at an advanced level and need to demonstrate passion about following a career in journalism.
Applications can be made by visiting www.britishcouncil.org/future-news-worldwide.
The deadline for submitting the applications is February 14, 2020.
