2012 EU-Canada Young Journalist Award

The EU-Canada Young Journalist Award was created in 2001 to recognize outstanding journalistic potential among Canadian students. Each year, three students are selected to participate in a one-week study tour of various EU institutions and the Canadian Mission to the EU in Brussels. Winners will also have the chance to attend a Midday EU press briefing. Prior to the trip, which is paid for by the European Union, winners will be invited to an awards ceremony in Ottawa in May 2012, an event attended by senior journalists, government officials and the diplomatic corps.

The Award is open to students in all Canadian universities and higher education establishments. Applicants are invited to make a submission focusing on current issues facing the European Union or EU-Canada relations no later than Friday, 27 January 2012.                             

The competition is open to all Canadian students and aims to reinforce links between the people of the European Union and Canada, and to promote awareness of the European Union among a new generation of Canadian students and journalists.
