Student journalists, want to show off your multimedia skills and help advance press freedom? Here’s your chance to do so, and possibly land an internship and see your work on CNN to boot.
Reporters Without Borders and CNN have teamed up to sponsor the For Press Freedom” contest, open to U.S. college/university students.
All you need to do is create a video Public Service Announcement and submit it online. The PSA can be up to 50 seconds on the topic of “Why should we care about freedom of information?” Don’t worry if you’re busy with mid-terms now. The deadline isn’t until March 2012, so start story boarding now and work on the production over winter break.
Reporters Without Borders will welcome PSAs that are creative, professional, and have enough impact to not only catch the viewers attention, but make them absorb the message, even after the video is off the air. PSAs should also reflect the character of RSF.
