How to get into the mass media culture fellowship
It may seem like a small amount of money, but for anyone who wants to take a step back and consider the world around them, this fellowship is the way to go.
In fact, it may be one of the most popular in the world.
For this year’s fellowship, the Guardian, Business Insider and Business Insider Europe are joining forces to help writers from around the world explore the world of mass media.
They’re all vying for the same prize: a spot on the 2017 BBC World Service World News programme, a three-week stint with the BBC’s flagship news programme The World, and a spot in the World Digital News team.
And it all comes down to a simple question: how much do you want to get paid?
The BBC has a reputation for producing sensational stories about the world’s most powerful people, but these fellows are more interested in the people who shape the news and the world than the stories themselves.
“We’ve always had a culture of journalism in which the stories are more important than the people making the stories,” said John Brackett, managing director of the BBC World service, who is also the BBCs director of news.
“That’s what makes the BBC so special.
It’s about the people.
It is the BBC.”
The BBC has been in business for more than a century, and has been the mainstay of the British media since 1947.
It has been praised by the US media for being an institution that celebrates diversity and diversity of thought, as well as for the BBC to remain one of Britain’s most influential and respected media organisations.
Its World News and World Service programmes are the bedrock of the nation’s news, with an emphasis on human rights, economic growth and the future of the planet.
But it has also been dogged by allegations of sexual misconduct and a string of scandals in recent years.
Last year, The Guardian reported that the BBC had hired a “sex-warrior” named Andrew Neil to work as a producer for its World News programmes.
Neil was charged with multiple counts of sexual assault, but later pleaded guilty to making false claims about an alleged incident with a woman he was interviewing.
He later apologised for his actions, and was suspended from the BBC.
The Guardian also revealed that BBC executives had been aware of a string in which women had been harassed and assaulted in the company.
As the BBC has become more of a destination for journalists from outside the UK, the BBC is now a more prominent and influential voice in the global news community, as evidenced by its role in shaping the future direction of the UK’s most popular news channel, Sky News.
This year’s World News fellows will be asked to reflect on their own experiences as part of a global competition that the Guardian runs with the other media organisations, The World Digital news team, the CBC’s Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and the BBC, The BBC and The Guardian.
The World News team will be chosen by a panel of journalists who will have been at the BBC for at least six months.
BBC World Service fellows will also be encouraged to participate in the programme, but only for a limited period of time, with the Guardian and Business Ink being the main focus.
All three have the same theme: to explore the power of the news, its impact on people and its influence on global events.
“The aim is to encourage and celebrate diversity and globalism,” said Mark Prentice, director of BBC World Services.
We want to make sure we do everything we can to give people a platform to explore, and share the news that matters to them.”
This fellowship is only open to the BBC staff, and it’s not limited to the newsroom: there are also opportunities for journalists to work with a BBC producer, or to work alongside a BBC journalist.
Award winners have to be prepared to take on new responsibilities, like taking part in projects that include film and TV production, news reporting, documentaries and more.
It’s not just about the money: this year, the World News fellowship also includes a special prize for the most successful writers in the UK.
“If you’re a presenter, you can be on BBC Radio 4. “
If you write a story, you’re going to be on the World news programme,” said Bracketts.
“If you’re a presenter, you can be on BBC Radio 4.
And if you’re the journalist who has the best idea of how to do something really exciting and interesting, you could be on The World.”
The fellows will work closely with the World Programme, the news programme that is also run by the BBC itself.
It focuses on the UK and the global context, but it’s also the only show that BBC staff can work on and watch, with a team of over 100 people in each of the six regions of the country.
