BIRN Macedonia Director Ana Petruseva explained the program to representatives of different media and non-governmental organizations and encouraged Macedonian journalists to apply for next year’s program, which opens in January under the topic “Generations”.
In the premises of the Journalism Club in Skopje, two Macedonian Fellows for 2013, Meri Jordanovska and Goran Rizaov, shared experiences of working and investigating in the framework of the Fellowship.
Both agreed that it had been a valuable experience for them and had offered them important opportunities to conduct in-depth research.
“This was a one of the best experiences for me. It was hard and exhausting but very interesting and valuable,” Jordanovska said.
The Balkan Fellowship for Journalistic Excellence program was founded in 2007. It is supported by Erste Foundation and implemented by the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network.
