Homework anyone?

Here is some homework of a different sort. This announcement from the European Journalism Centre (below) may have all the appeal of a dead fish. On the other hand it might open the door to stardom and a regular slot on the Huffington Post.


The European Journalism Centre (EJC) is launching The European Blogging Competition 2009, on the theme of TH!NK ABOUT IT.

The focus of the competition is the European Parliament Elections 2009. EJC wants to offer a platform for journalism students, aspiring journalists and bloggers to express their views on European topics as well as to report and cover the elections.

EJC invites interested bloggers to visit information site to learn more and sign up.

Registered participants get a free trip to Brussels to the TH!NK ABOUT IT. kick-off event 25.-27.1.2009. At the end of the Competition, June 2009, participants receive a work certificate for doing journalistic work for a European online publication (January-June 2009). Best blog posts are awarded with nice prizes.

Please contact, if you have questions about the Competition, or want to recommend an accomplished blogger to take part in the event.

Exmoorjane's Avatar Well, I sincerely hope you will be applying, Fennie......
I'll certainly give this one a miss - unless of course the EJC would be interested in self-combusting dogs!
Interesting that they are looking to bloggers though.....

Frances's Avatar I am reading this at end of day, having dinner, and with a glass of red at the ready.

Please do get your application in Fennie.
I do love the Huffington Post. Not every day, every post, but the idea of it. One of its contributors, Russell Simmons, has been in my shop! Cool, what.

I think that our recent election results would not have been possible without the power of the web.
