Deadline 8 June 2021

Applications are now open for Future News Worldwide 2021.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, this years Future News Worldwide conference will again be online. 2021's theme is ‘Climate, COVID-19 and the rise of disinformation: how journalism can best serve a world in crisis’.

Future News Worldwide is a partnership programme between the British Council and some of the world's leading media organisations. The aim is to support young people to develop a wide range of journalism skills and to establish the UK as a global leader in the nurturing of young journalists and media figures.

Each year we bring together 100 of the world's most talented, motivated and passionate student journalists to attend an intensive media training programme. Participants receive exclusive coaching from world-leading editors, broadcasters, writers and reporters, and see how publishers around the world are using technology to find stories and bring them to life like never before.
