Call for journalists/photographers/filmmakers: EUtoo
This year, cafébabel is going to 7 different European cities for our new feature report "EU too". Following on from Budapest in September and Madrid in October, we will be heading to the delightful city of Krakow from the 25th to 29th of November. Selected journalists will be accompanied by Katharina, our German editor, and welcomed to the city by our local team.
So what is "EU too"?
For our next feature report, EU too, cafébabel is going to meet the disenchanted youth of Europe. Who are these young people, contesting European consensus and leaving it behind in favour of alternative ideas? Why do they feel badly represented ? What is it that they want to change? What are they hoping for in the future ? In order to answer these questions, we will meet and interview them in their own cities and neighbourhoods.
The objective will be to listen to the voices of these young people to include them in the European debate. We are expecting a youth-friendly and off-the-wall tone, as well as an original and innovative style. Spend time with the locals, describe what you see, feel and learn from them. Tell your story in a creative and personal way, backed up with facts, statistics and verifiable sources!
Once selected, you will have to book your own flights or trains to Krakow: a sum of up to 280 euros is reimbursed by cafebabel (you must keep your receipts) once you have returned from the trip and we have received your receipts. Other travel and food expenses will be reimbursed up to 200 euros (for more information contact our project officer Laura). The team will stay in a hostel that will be booked by cafébabel.
Our German editor, Katharina, will be leading the trip to Krakow. She will supervise you whilst deciding on the angle for your article and making preparations for interviews at least two weeks before the trip is due to begin. You will also benefit from the help of our local team in Krakow.
However, you must prepare your own subject and bring your own ideas to the table. Get information about the city, find people that you would like to interview, show your creativity and motivation!
The deadline for the submission of written pieces is strictly one week after the end of the trip. It will then be edited, translated and published in the six languages of cafébabel over the following month.
