ICRC Young Reporter Competition

1st Jan 2010

Take the opportunity to join a humanitarian experience and discover the reality in the field of how young people are acting in the reality of situations of violence and armed conflict.

This competition is organised in collaboration with national Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. A one-week mission to ICRC delegations in Georgia, Lebanon, Liberia and the Philippines is offered to the four best entries. You will be in direct contact in the field with young people affected by armed conflict or violence situations and have a chance to report back to your peers.
The selected candidates will have the chance to produce a news report on their mission, in film or print, with the guidance and coaching of an ICRC communication specialist. The results of this work will be shown and/or published in a variety of media outlets. The final products will be presented during a ceremony held in Geneva in May 2011.

If you are between 18 and 25 years old, interested in youth issues and humanitarian action, strongly skilled in communication and creative expression, this competition is for you. It’s an occasion to develop your creativity and your ability to work as part of a multicultural team during one week
