Ideas sought for radio features on social issues in Central Asia
Radio reporters from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan have until March 2 to submit short story proposals on social issues related to women and children in Central Asia. Stories focusing on issues in rural areas are preferred.
Applicants whose ideas are selected will participate in a month-long workshop to produce their feature stories under the guidance of a BBC specialist and with the help of local experts. Participants will receive full technical and financial support. Materials can be produced in any language.
The first-prize winner in each country will go on a week-long study-tour to Yekaterinburg, Russia. Additional winners will receive the latest model of a professional sound recorder.
The contest is being organized by the BBC World Service Trust.
