Travel fellowship from the International Center for Journalists. Details below.
Project Description: In honor of Rebecca Lipkin’s dedication to broadcast
journalism and her work as a Knight International Journalism Fellow training
journalists in Eastern Europe in 1999, the International Center for
Journalists will send a fellow to Bangladesh in early 2011. For
approximately a one-month period, the Rapid-Response Fellow will support the
development of the Television News Agency (TvNA <http://tvnabd.com/new/> ).
Launched in 2009 by the Bangladesh Centre for Development, Journalism and
Communication (BCDJC <http://www.bcdjc.org/> ) and Knight International
Journalism Fellow Kawser Mahmud, TvNA is the first women’s broadcast news
agency in Bangladesh. In partnership with BCDJC, the fellow will help women
journalists produce quality programming on issues that affect women and
children for TvNA. The fellow also will help TvNA and its partners develop
better newsroom management practices. The ideal candidate will have
broadcast journalism and media-management experience.
