CONTEST: Europe is MORE than you think
Young journalists, photographers and videographers are invited to compete for eight prizes in the "Europe is More Than You Think" Award 2009, organised jointly by the Council of Europe and the European Youth Press.
The contest wants you to look beyond the headlines which dominate the common understanding of Europe - big government, international finance and trade agreements - and capture the Europe which, all too often, goes unnoticed.
The award is open to residents of Council of Europe member states, with the most important rule being that entrants must be aged between 18 and 27. The closing date for submissions is 6 December 2009. Entrants can submit their work in either French or English.

CONTEST: "Freedom of Young Media"
Only 6 more days to go for our first Asia-Europe competition. With the slogan "Freedom of Young Media" young journalists until 30 years can upload their articles, video- or audio-files, photos and pdf-files to Youthmedia.eu and AYCN.net and join the debate over continents.

Until 20th of September the competition, jointly organised by the Asian Media Information and Communication Centre and the European Youth Press, is still running.

Just log in to the competition-website and upload your media. You can win Adobe software package, a DELL-Netbook and a Microsoft software package. Experienced journalists from both continents and media experts from OSCE, European Journalism Center, InterNews and UNESCO will therefore evaluate all entries.
