Assignment: CNN iReport University
iREPORTERS SIGNED UP
Created August 30, 2010 by
CNN iReport University is a new initiative offering top journalism students from across the world the opportunity to develop and hone their editorial skills, with support from CNN.
Selected students will be invited to share the stories that are creating a buzz in their countries or communities. We want to hear insightful, different and exciting stories that communicate the real feeling on the street and give students the opportunity to show us what they can do.
The best ideas will be sent to a pool of CNN producers, who will be given the option to develop them into stories for CNN International, CNN.com and other CNN networks and platforms.
CNN staff will offer guidance and advice on each of the students' suggestions, giving them opportunities to gain first-hand practical knowledge of the processes involved in editorial decision making in an international newsroom.
Keep an eye on this page for more on the project and to see stories from journalism students from around the world.
