SEAPA opens applications to 2009 Journalism Fellowship Program

SEAPA opens applications to 2009 Journalism Fellowship Program

Deadline: March 15

The Southeast Asian Press Alliance (SEAPA) is now accepting applications for the 8th SEAPA Journalism Fellowship Program, centered on the theme, "The Challenge for Democracy and Human Rights Under the New ASEAN Charter."

For three weeks in May, SEAPA will provide journalists, including freelancers, from Southeast Asia with the opportunity to explore common issues affecting their communities and nations. The program will include two three-day workshops, and two weeks to cover a Southeast Asian country.

Journalists interested in taking part in the program should submit an application form downloadable from the SEAPA website, along with a story proposal (no more than 1,000 words) in line with the given theme. Story ideas can center on profiling people, communities, policies, events, or issues that can illustrate human rights challenges in the context of the ASEAN Charter.

Applicants must also submit two articles published from 2007 to 2009, a picture ID, CV, and certification of employment from their media company. (Freelancers may submit certification from editors of publications where their submitted clips appeared.)
