Citizen Journalism Films On Show

Videos entered for a citizen journalism competition are now available to view online.

Over 80 films were submitted to Project: Report, a contest for “non-professional, aspiring journalists” run by YouTube in partnership with the Pulitzer Center.

Visitors to the Project: Report channel can watch all of the pieces entered for round one, which asked budding storytellers to make a short video profile of a person in their community.

Among the varied array of subjects are an unorthodox high school physics teacher, a D-Day veteran and a Holocaust survivor.

On October 14 the judging panel will announce the ten semi-finalists from the first round who will then go on to fulfill two more assignments.

The winning citizen journalist will receive a grant from the Pulitzer Centre to produce a video report.

More details on Project: Report can be found at PulitzerCenter.org.
