Call for the 2008 EU-Canada Young Journalist Award

Call for the 2008 EU-Canada Young Journalist Award

The European Union has announced a journalist award for young Canadians, now in its seventh year. The EU-Canada Young Journalist Award 2008 is assigned to students who submit a composition on a current issue facing the European Union or EU-Canada relations by Friday, January 25, 2008. The compositions should be in the form of a piece that could be published or broadcast in the Canadian media.

In December 2001, the EU diplomatic missions in Ottawa decided to create the EU-Canada Young Journalist Award to recognize outstanding journalistic merit or potential among Canadian students. The winners are selected by an independent jury. In order to be eligible, students must be enrolled in a Canadian university or other higher education establishment, and a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.

The winners will be invited on a one-week study tour to Europe, which includes a visit to the EU institutions in Brussels, paid for by the European Commission. Prior to the trip the winners will receive an award certificate at a ceremony in Ottawa in May 2008, attended by members from the world of media, government and the diplomatic corps.
