Sie­ben Städ­te und sie­ben Re­por­ta­gen: EU-to­pia geht in seine nächs­te Runde. Dies­mal geht es nach Österreich. Jetzt bringt dich das Pro­jekt „EU­to­pia: Time to Time“ nach Wien, in die hei­ßes­te Haupt­stadt der ... ähh Welt!

STEP 1: WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?

WHAT IS ‘EU­TOPIA’?

In 2013 we launched our monthly ed­i­to­r­ial se­ries, ‘EU­topia on the ground’, which aims to raise con­scious­ness about what Eu­rope re­ally is in the run up to the Eu­ro­pean elec­tions.

WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING?

Writ­ing about pro­jects, ideas, sto­ries, ini­tia­tives and an­gles that will grab peo­ple and make them see what Eu­rope is all about. Get out ‘on the ground’ and make us feel you’ve been out there, re­ally get­ting to grips with Vienna. Be more 'gonzo' than 'in­sti­tu­tional' in your style of jour­nal­ism: be cre­ative and be per­sonal, whilst re­main­ing jour­nal­ism-ori­ented with facts and sta­tis­tics, good sources and in­ter­vie­wees. Spend time with lo­cals, de­scribe what you saw/felt/learnt from them. Be crit­i­cal- ‘EU’ isn’t an ide­ol­ogy for Caféba­bel.​

STEP 2: RE­CRUIT­ING YOU

WANTED:

We need three jour­nal­ists (print or video) and one pho­tog­ra­pher to join this team: writ­ing on the three fol­low­ing top­ics with the sup­port of our local team:

Youth un­em­ploy­ment and mo­bil­ity in Eu­rope

Youth ini­tia­tives in Vienna

Eu­rophilia/Eu­ro­pho­bia and Eu­roscep­ti­cism

Make sure you pre­pare so you can re­ally get your teeth into your story.

It’s your ar­ti­cle pro­pos­als that will get you no­ticed for this com­mis­sion: so be cre­ative, do some re­search be­fore ap­ply­ing, show us what you’ve got.

STEP 3: THE "YOU" IN EU­TOPIA ON THE GROUND

LO­GIS­TICS:

Book your own flights/trains to Vienna: a sum of up to 280 euros is re­im­bursed by Cafébabel for trans­port (pro­vided re­ceipts are kept) upon your re­turn from the trip and re­ceipt of the ar­ti­cle. 220 euros is re­im­bursed for liv­ing costs whilst in Vienna (keep re­ceits). For more in­for­ma­tion speak to our communication officer, Emeline. The team will stay in a hos­tel paid for by Cafébabel.

ED­I­TO­R­IAL:

The ed­i­tor in charge at Paris HQ, who will be lead­ing the team in Vienna, will su­per­vise you in defin­ing the angle of your ar­ti­cle and mak­ing prepa­ra­tions for in­ter­views a cou­ple of weeks be­fore we set off.

BUT:

it’s up to you to do your own re­search be­fore leav­ing for the pro­ject, to find in­ter­est­ing an­gles and or­gan­ise in­ter­vie­wees and ideas 'on the ground'. The writ­ten piece is due in one week later, when the rel­e­vant lin­guis­tic ed­i­tor from our cen­tral Paris of­fice will edit your piece, which will be trans­lated by our vol­un­teer net­works, and then pub­lished in six lan­guages within the fol­low­ing month.

STEP 4: APPLY

If you are under 35 years old and you live in a Eu­ro­pean coun­try, then send us your CV, two three-line EU­TOPIA pitches, linked with the Eu­ro­pean elec­tions, youth mo­bil­ity and un­em­ploy­ment, ideas for in­ter­vie­wees etc... be orig­i­nal! We look for­ward to read­ing them!

Pho­tog­ra­phers! Send us a CV, a port­fo­lio and two pitches for photo gallery sto­ries in Vienna.

Make sure you send all of this in Eng­lish or French.
