Ruth Spencer from The European Journalism Centre (EJC) contacted me to let us know about The European Blogging Competition they are launching in Brussels from 25th to 27th of January coming.
The theme is TH!NK ABOUT IT and the focus of the competition is the European Parliament Elections 2009. EJC wants to offer a platform for journalism students, aspiring journalists and bloggers to express their views on European topics as well as to report and cover the elections.
They want to have three bloggers from each country attending the launch event and will cover the travel costs. The timeline is:
- Launch event: 25 January, 2009 – 27 January, 2009
- Blogging: 1 February, 2009 – 9 June, 2009
- Competition results: 12 June, 2009

If you are wondering what this has to do with Web2Ireland, I’d simply say that the direction the EU takes over the next few years, particularly in how it deals with a global recession, will have direct impact on start-ups here.
