COMPETITION FOR PARTICIPATION IN ARMENIAN-TURKISH TEAM REPORTING PROJECT ANNOUNCED

Yerevan Press Club (Armenia) in cooperation with ARI Movement (Turkey), with
the support of the Eurasia Foundation, are announcing a competition for journalists
willing to engage in an Armenian-Turkish investigative team-reporting project,
which aims to produce high quality stories about issues of mutual concern. The
project will ultimately help to raise public awareness on Armenian-Turkish cross-boarder
initiatives.

The selected journalists will take part in a two day preparatory workshop in
Istanbul in January 2008, after which they will be given one month to collect
material and work on their stories. Administrative, logistical, informative
and financial support will be provided to them by the Yerevan Press Club and
ARI Movement as necessary.

To apply the journalists must submit letters of interest and recommendations
from their employers supporting their participation and ensuring publication
of stories/articles produced as a result of the team-reporting project.

Applications from Armenian journalists may be made electronically – by emailing:
anna@ypc.am, or handdelivered at YPC office: 9b, Ghazar Parpetsi str., 0002,
Yerevan, Armenia, tel.: + 374 10 53 00 67, from 12:00-17:00.

The deadline for applications is November 30, 2007.
