Canada-EU Young Journalist Award – Call for applications

Students at Canadian post-secondary institutions are invited to submit a written or recorded story about the European Union or Canada-EU relations for a chance to win a trip to Europe and meet the largest permanent press corps in Brussels, the city at the heart of the EU’s decision-making machinery.

Canadian students are invited to submit a composition on a current issue facing the European Union or EU-Canada relations by Friday, January 28, 2011. Compositions should be in the form of a piece that could be published or broadcast in the Canadian media. 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 Union. Prior to the trip the winners will be invited to an award ceremony in Ottawa in May 2011, attended by senior journalists, government officials and the diplomatic corps.
