LAUSANNE, May 25, 2020 – Doors are open for young reporters at the AIPS Sport Media Awards 2020! After a first fortunate debut last year, the Young Reporters category is ready to welcome sumbissions from budding journalists for the next edition of the AIPS’ international recognition.
The Young Reporters category is open to professionals that are under 30 (born on or after January 1, 1991). AIPS has invested in the future of sport journalism by creating the respected AIPS Young Reporters Programmes, that set a high quality reporting standard for UEFA, FIFA, FINA and IAAF events since 2011, and the e-College, an innovative distance-learning programme launched in April 2020. To give an Award to the younger generations is another step in the same direction and underlines AIPS efforts to offer a better future in this profession. Each of the winners will receive a career-boost opportunity: a scholarship in a major international sports event.
Reporters can compete in three subcategories:
BEST YOUNG REPORTER IN PHOTOGRAPHY.
BEST YOUNG REPORTER IN WRITING.
BEST YOUNG REPORTER IN BROADCASTING (AUDIO AND VIDEO).
From the two submissions per person, only one can be used to participate in the Young Reporters category. The submitted work has to be published between October 7, 2019 and September 8, 2020.
Three talented journalists were awarded last year. Mattia Ozbot (Italy) won for the best photography “Lights and shadows”, capturing basketball from a singular angle. Mažvydas Laurinaitis (Lithuania) won for the best written article “Famous Lithuanian trainer accused of sexual harassment”, while Hamza Ait Messaoud (Morocco) were awarded for his video about the Moroccan football system “Football clubs in Morocco: a reality of three degrees”
