Win an invitation to our Smart Journalism Workshop

Do you believe in the power of journalism?  Well, you may be the only one.

Just kidding. You’ve come to the right place.

Journalism (the good kind, not the fake-stuff) is more needed today than ever. We are surrounded by lies, exaggeration and attempts to soften reality.

But what does it take to be a journalist in this world of competing information and 24-hour news feeds? How do you recognise the right angles? How do you prepare when the villains have become ever sharper?

Our team will be meeting to discuss and workshop the future of journalism and how to approach story telling in a post-everything-that-was-decent-world.

We are offering three aspiring young journalists the chance to join our Smart Journalism Workshop.

Here is what you need to do to earn an invite:

  1. Write an article in which you answer the following question:
    If you could change one thing about South Africa, what would it be? Why would you change? And how would you do it? Your article should not be longer than 600 words. Submit it as Miicrosoft Word file to:
  2. Record a selfie video in which you make a case for being selected. Tell us about yourself, why you want to come for the workshop and anything else that might convince us. The video should be no longer than 60 seconds. Submit to: or +97466102016 (over WhatsApp)

Here is what you need to know:

  • You must submit BOTH entries before Monday, 20 February 2017, no later than 17h00.
  • The workshop will take place at WISER, Wits University. You need to live in the Johannesburg area and be able to get to Wits University on your own. We will provide you with writing material and lunch (so you will be literally writing for food).
  • You need to be older than 16 years old to enter. And you need to be available on both Friday and Saturday 24 and 25 February.
  • Our team will check out your entries and you will be notified on Tuesday, 21 February 2017 if you’re selected.

Good luck!
