Universiade to be Covered by Student Journalists
Student journalists from different universities in Shenzhen, Shanghai and Guangzhou are in the city to cover the Universiade games. These students will first attend lectures that will be given by seasoned journalists to prepare them for their tasks.
The ten student journalists will then upload their videos and articles in the local news portal www.sznews.com and will be subjected to comments and suggestions from people using the internet. Media professionals will then review the works of these student journalists, and five of them will be selected. The two top winners will be employed by sznews.com or by BestTV, a Shanghai based organization.
The five winners will also get Apple products as additional prizes. The student journalists are excited with the training that they will receive from veteran reporters and the chance to be a part of the Universiade games. The students will learn how to be a good news reporter and will be learning to do photography as well.
The ten students were chosen from twenty candidates through online votes and interviews from professional journalists.
