Pulitzer Center Announces YouTube Journalism Contest

Sep 23rd, 2008 | By | Category: General

The Pulitzer Center has announced Project: Report, a citizen journalism contest intended to encourage non-professional journalists to use YouTube tell stories not covered by traditional media. 

In each of the three rounds of Project: Report, reporters will be given an assignment to complete. Winners of each round will receive technology prizes from Sony VAIO & Intel, and the grand prize winner will be granted a $10,000 journalism fellowship from the Pulitzer Center to report on story outside their home country. 

“Central to the Pulitzer Center’s mission is coverage of stories that are being under-reported in today’s media environment,” said Jon Sawyer, executive director of the Pulitzer Center. “With YouTube’s global reach and popularity we have the unique opportunity to offer a program that encourages aspiring journalists to tell these stories in a fresh and compelling way.”
