The NewsSpectrum programme partners will host a webinar on July 20, 2021 at 16:00 CEST to answer questions about the kinds of support available for minority-language media based in the EU and UK.

On 7 July, NewsSpectrum opened its second application call for its two fellowship programmes: The Collaborative Reporting Fellowship supports reporting projects carried out by journalists working at minority-language media in collaboration with a majority-language media outlet. The Professional Placement Fellowship supports custom short-term work placements or study visits by minority-language media professionals at majority-language media. Both fellowships are open to staff and freelance journalists and other media professionals working for minority-language media (including Roma and migrant languages) in the EU and UK.

The deadline for all applications is August 9, 23:59 CEST. See full information and FAQs

At the webinar, representatives of the International Press Institute and the European Assoc​​iation of Daily Newspapers in Minority and Regional Languages (MIDAS) will give a brief overview of the NewsSpectrum Fellowships programme and answer any questions you may have.

The webinar will be held via Zoom.
