The new digital era of media, and the globalisation of economic and political processes have brought new challenges to journalism. In particular, there is the need to develop international professional networks in order to understand regional characteristics and better cover transnational stories.
To reflect the needs of journalists Perspektivy is opening a scheme that aims to connect journalists in ‘cross-border’ collaboration. Journalists and bloggers from Russia, Central Asia, Eastern Europe, the Baltics or the Caucasus will have the opportunity to work together to produce stories through partnership and collaboration that transcend their national border.
Working in teams, participants can produce joint or individual work. These stories can be on any topic, as long as they draw on examples from outside of their home country. For example, refugee and migrant crises, climate changes, food production and its export/import, media, or civil society. Other ideas are welcome.
Successful candidates will receive professional mentoring, assistance for research trips arrangements and reimbursement of costs for those trips. Travel costs, accommodation and per diem for both programme launch and closing 2-days seminars will also be covered by the programme.
