TV call for students’ news reports

Companhia de Ideias is a Portuguese television production company and they are currently producing a new tv programme called EuroTwitt.

EuroTwitt is a weekly show (25 minutes long) for young people, where they can learn about all the European current affairs / interesting events. Inspired by the popular social network Twitter, the show features short-news reports, short interviews and humour sketches; and will begin broadcasting in March 2010. The goal is to provide and divulge information in a short entertaining programme.

Topic and eligibility
As the show is aimed at young European people with an interest in the EU and related topics, they are including a spot in the show for tv news reports by journalism students from all over Europe. Therefore all journalism/audiovisual students are invited to send us their news reports to be aired on the show. These should be about any topic of interest to the EU in general – the idea is to provide feedback from different countries and events all over Europe.
