jrs_01.jpgThe deadline for entries for the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) Europe competition for student journalists is 22 February 2008. Aimed at highlighting the challenges facing refugees and asylum seekers, the ‘Access to Asylum’ competition is open to students, or recent graduates, from any institute of higher education in one of the forty-three member states of the Council of Europe. And the prize? For the winner it’s a trip to a refugee camp in Malawi. And the authors of the three best entries will attend a prize-giving ceremony in Brussels and have their work circulated to European and national media. For more details, check the JRS Europe website or contact Elizabeth Underhill, JRS Europe, [email protected], (0032) 22503220.
