Journalists from all over the world can now apply online for the second class of the International Academy of Journalism (Intajour) founded by Bertelsmann. Successful applicants for the “Journalism in the Digital World” fellowship program will begin their ten-month training course this September.
The “Journalism in the Digital World” training program is aimed at journalists from countries where press freedom is restricted or threatened. The Fellows of the first year, which is still ongoing until June, come from Armenia, China, Egypt, Ghana, Liberia, Moldova, Nepal, Nicaragua, Syria, Thailand, Ukraine and Zimbabwe.
The 12 Fellows are coached in the areas of “investigative research”, “journalistic representation on the Internet,” “shooting and editing web videos,” “technical production of web content” and “media ethics”.
The new course starts on September 2, 2012 and once again consists of attendance phases in Hamburg, Cologne and Berlin as well as two intensive e-learning phases. The deadline for applications is May 7, 2012 and they can only be made
