For the second year running, YouTube is offering aspiring journalists the chance to win big money - and more importantly, the chance to work on a journalism project with the Pulitzer Center. For the first round of the Project Report competition, entrants are required to submit a video package based on a day in the life of a person they feel should be brought to the world's attention. The deadline is February 28. Marks will be awarded for the quality of the storytelling and the technical qualities of the video. Could be tailor-made for CfJ students.

The winner scoops a $10,000 grant to work on a journalism project with the Pulitzer Center, and there are laptops and camera gear up for grabs too.

Get to it.



To participate in the 'competition', you must be a resident or a citizen of the 50 states or DC.

Can't "get to it." : (

What about entering this Picturing Europe competiton  as an equally valuable alternative? As it says on the tin it is designed for European citizens. You need to produce and upload a three minute clip according to their criteria and the prize is a very attractive 10,000 Euros ,

Ah. Bit of a drawback. Sorry folks.
