"Media - partners on the move for democracy, transparency and exchange" 
is a nine-day program in Berlin organised by the Berlin School of 
Journalism for journalists from six Eastern Partnership countries. 
During their stay - probably in early November - ten selected 
participants will gain insights concerning German media and the 
political system of the Federal Republic of Germany. This will include 
lectures and excursions. The participants will also visit institutions 
and NGOs, which are active in the Eastern Partnership countries, 
specifically in the media sector.

The participants will work together on articles to be published or 
broadcasted in the media they are working for at home and on a program 
web page. By spending time and working together, the journalists can 
share knowledge of their nation’s media, exchange their experiences and 
expectations and form networks.

The program is supported by the German Federal Foreign Office program 
"strengthening cooperation with civil society in the Eastern Partnership 
countries". Application is only open to English-speaking journalists of 
all ages from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and 
Ukraine. They should have at least one year of professional experience. 
Travel expenses and accommodation will be covered by the program.

In your application please describe both your professional background 
and the reasons for your application. Furthermore a detailed curriculum 
vitae is required, if possible proof of your English proficiency and one 
or two examples of your journalistic work. Send these documents via 
e-mail only (pdf, in total not more than 5 MB) to 
<mediapartners at berliner-journalisten-schule.de> not later than September 
20th, 2015. Please send only certificates and recommendations if they 
appertain to your application (e.g. showing your experience in 
journalism or international cooperation). Do not send university 
diplomas, except those concerning your English proficiency.
