The EU Delegation, in collaboration with the Government of Liberia through its National Authorizing Office (NAO), has extended the application deadline for the "Young Media Professionals Awareness Campaign”. The campaign is looking to fill eight temporary positions with Young media professionals from the EU and Liberia, with excellent journalistic and interpersonal skills, who will contribute to highlighting the European Union’s development support to Liberia. The original deadline of 30 September has been extended to 15 October to give Europeans and Liberians more time to apply for the Campaign.

To bring forward the positive impact of the EU-Liberia Partnership, eight young media professionals between the ages of 20-35 will be selected both from the EU and Liberia. The young media professionals will receive media equipment, training and stipend, and will travel across Liberia for two weeks and visit key Liberian media outlets to present the results of their research and reporting.

A key responsibility of the Young Media Professionals selected is to conduct research on five thematic areas, visit EU-funded programs and bring back compelling multimedia content that illustrates the human impact of these programs for wider distribution.

During the campaign, which will last 30 days, the selected Young Media Professionals from the EU Member States and Liberia will not only uncover and report stories about the positive changes in Liberia, but they will also enjoy experiencing intercultural exchange opportunities.

Details about the programme, eligibility requirements and application guidelines can be found here:

Interested candidates that meet the eligibility criteria are strongly advised to apply by the new application deadline of 15 October 2019.
