Young Reporters Against Poverty is a competition for European college and university students passionate about journalism and development.

Thirty-three finalists – students from 26 EU member states – have been selected to attend and cover this year’s European Development Days (EDD) in Brussels 6-7 December 2010. They will also receive hands on training to assist them in their live reporting of the event.

Their coverage – articles, radio broadcasts, photos and tweets – are posted on this website.

After the EDD, the finalists will have one week to perfect their best article/broadcast, to be presented to a jury of professional journalists and media professionals.

The three overall winners selected by the jury will receive a press visit to Africa in 2011.

The YRAP competition is organised by the European Journalism Centre with financial support from the European Commission’s EuropAid Co-operation Office.
