How to Apply
- You should fill the online application form in order to submit your final project or your draft for editing.
- Please note that your goal is to tell a great story. Therefore, focus on one person and tell how his or her story relates to a bigger global issue. Your reporting must be original, factual and true, and it should consider multiple sides of the story. It should feature at least three voices: an in-person interview with the individual affected, an expert on the topic (like a researcher, a teacher, a doctor, or a professor), and any other third voice of your choice. That third person can be you, the narrator.
Deadline: Entries should be sent in by February 22, 2013
