Go out - find a story – publish it:
The „4th International Video Journalism Awards" is calling for entries!

The Video Journalism Awards is looking for non-fiction videos from
single authors, the so called videojournalists (short VJs). A VJ is
responsible for the whole creative process starting from research and
shooting as well as covering the whole process of editing and
sometimes even the publication of the film.
A small camcorder and a laptop are the tools of the VJ, which is
comparable to the pen and paper a newspaper journalist uses.

The final deadline for entering films for the 4th International Video
Journalism Awards is the 15th of October 2008. The awards are produced
by vjawards.com , the host is ZDF German Television in Mainz.

The internet is converging all kinds of media, which is reflected by
this year's theme "unlimited access". The awards try to cover all
known fields of video journalism: films from TV-stations and
publishing companies and productions from an independent background
are awarded with a total of 12.000 € of prize money going to the
seperated categories "independent and online" and "TV production".
Recent developements that influence the VJ-scene and future
perspectives are discussed in the supporting programme of the 4th
International Video Journalism Awards.
