Opportunity PRMTR-10-GR-001-EUR-050710: The Offices of Public Affairs of the US Embassies in Turkey and Armenia announce the Turkish, Armenian and American Journalist Exchange Program "New Media-New Challenges: Reporting Best Practices for a New Age" open competition. Public and private non-profit organizations meeting the provisions described in Internal Revenue Code section 26 USC 501(c)(3) may submit proposals to conduct a professional development program for Turkish and Armenian journalists, with two interlocked components: a four-week US-based program featuring a seminar and professional US internships for six pairs of journalists, each consisting of one Turkish and one Armenian participant; and two best practice 3-day reporting conferences, to be held back to back in Ankara and Yerevan, for approximately 15 Turkish and 15 Armenian journalists along with the 12 Turkish/Armenian participants on the US exchange and six representatives of the sponsoring US media outlets. Two expert American speakers would be invited to attend and lecture. The total possible participants for the best practice workshops is 50. The program ideally will be administered by an NGO with media development expertise or a university school of journalism with similar experience. Working in cooperation with regional media in Turkey and Armenia is desired for the follow on exchange. The goal of the program is to explore reporting tradecraft used in reporting on regional issues of mutual concern -- such as the Turkey-Armenia reconciliation process or energy issues -- while exposing and improving participants understanding of high quality journalism ethics that are vital to a free society. The US exchange program will include a seminar week and 3-4 weeks of hands-on reporting experience at American media outlets. Home stays will be incorporated. The best practice seminar held consecutively in Turkey and Armenia will bring together working journalists for dialogue and tap into expertise offered by recent Humphrey, Fulbright, Murrow and other US exchange alumni now working in both countries. In pairs, Turkish and Armenian participants in the US phase of the program will join the staff of the US grantee in organizing the conference, which will feature up to two US speakers from the American journalism world. The US phase of the program should take place during a typically quiet period for the media in June-September or during major holiday periods. The Armenian and Turkish exchange portions of the program should be scheduled during a mutually convenient time for about 3 days in each country 3-6 months following the US-based exchange program.------II.
