In the course of this year’s Fellowship programme, starting with the introductory meeting on April 25 in Vienna, the ten selected journalists will examine the topic of Communities from different angles.
Over four days, fellows will be introduced to the programme and will receive practical tips from Fellowship programme editors related to their projects, including individually tailored assistance, insight into fact-checking, research planning and methodology, possibilities for online presentation of their stories and using photography in journalism.
On these occasions fellows will meet each other as well as BIRN’s regional editorial team, led by Neil Arun, and programme partners.
In addition they will have peer-to-peer exchanges with two previous fellows: Adrian Mogos, who will give a presentation on investigative techniques, and Davor Konjikusic, who will be running the photo workshop.
Ten fellows have been chosen to participate in the fourth year of the Fellowship programme and their work, which will start immediately after the seminar with four months of research during which they will travel to neighbouring countries and the EU, exploring different aspects of their projects.
