This year, cafébabel is going to 7 European cities for the new feature report project EU too. The first destination is Budapest, the beautiful capital of Hungary, where cafébabel is going to meet the disenchanted youth of Europe. The objective will be to listen these young people to include them in the European debate. It is expected a youth-friendly and off-the-wall tone as well as an original and innovative style.
Spend time with locals, describe what you saw, felt and learnt from them. Tell your story in a creative and personal way relying on facts, statistics and exact sources! An English editor will be leading the trip to Budapest. He will supervise you in defining the angle of your article and making preparations for interviews at least a couple of weeks before the trip is due to begin. However, you must prepare your subject and bring your ideas. Get information about the city, find people that you would like to interview, show your creativity and motivation!
Cafébabel is looking for 2 print journalists, 1 photographer and 1 videomaker who are motivated to form this great team. All applicants shuld be under 35 years old and live in a European country.
Once selected successful applicants will have to book own flights/trains to Budapest: a sum up of EUR 280 is reimbursed by cafebabel upon return from the trip and receipt of the article. Other travel and food expenses will be reimbursed up to EUR 200. The team will stay in a hostel that will be booked by cafébabel.
