The excitement and heated atmosphere of the pressroom is what defines the role of a journalist at MEU 2013. Throughout the week, your fast-paced life revolves around a daily newspaper, press conferences and continuous pursuit of news, scandals, and memorable quotes. The job is never done and you stay focused even when the social programme is on. Updating participants about the progress of the conference is your main objective. Producing alternately a tabloid and a broadsheet gives you a comprehensive insight into the multifaceted nature of the profession and allows you to practice all skills connected with news-making: planning and deciding on the content, investigating and writing articles, making interviews, taking pictures as well as designing and editing the layout. Start a newspaper from a scratch!
In order to take off the ground, your team of 7 journalists (3 editors, 1 photographer, 1videographer, 1 graphic designer and 1 for social networks) will be asked to compile a pre-conference paper to be distributed on the arrival day, and after the simulation is over – the conference result booklet to cap the project.
Working in a multinational team of young professionals offers you a perfect chance to exchange experience, confront styles and techniques and thus – make your conference participation a marvellous experience.
