YouTube's Journalism Contest - Project:Report

YouTube in partnership with Pulitzer Center has started a journalism contest - Project: Report (made possible by Sony VAIO and Intel) for non-professional, aspiring journalists to tell stories that might not otherwise be covered by traditional media.

There are three rounds of Project and in each round: Report, reporters will be given an assignment to complete. Each of these assignments gives you an opportunity to report on the important individuals, issues, and communities in your life that most people do not yet know about.

Round 1 assignment is to profile someone in your community, in three minutes or less, highlighting a story you think deserves to be heard by a wide audience. Last date to submit Round 1 video entry is by October 5 midnight EST.The panel of journalists from the Pulitzer Center will then choose 10 semi-finalists.

The assignment for Round 2 will then be announced, and the judging for this round will be opened up to the YouTube community to determine the five finalists who will move onto the third and last assignment.

Winners of each round will receive technology prizes from Sony VAIO and Intel, and the grand prize winner will be granted a $10,000 journalism fellowship with the Pulitzer Center to report on a story outside of their home country.

So if you have that journalist thing in you then just grab a camera and start rolling. 10 grands is a lot of money.
