The programme received a record 162 applications for 2014. Many were of a very high standard, making the final choice extremely difficult.
The programme’s selection committee evaluates applications based on the relevance, feasibility and originality of the proposals, as well as the applicants’ professional qualifications, motivation and journalistic approach. The committee is comprised of seven senior media figures from the Balkans and around Europe.
BIRN thanks all the applicants and encourages those who were not successful to consider applying again next year.
