The jury will be looking for candidates with strong interest in learning more about MENA countries and their cultures, while having little exposure to the region prior the trip. To be selected, participants should also have concrete ideas on how to engage with peers and partners from MENA countries.
The jury will also be assessing professional accomplishment in the fields of media and civil society, and will look for applicants with potential of shaping opinion and taking strong initiatives within their community.
The jury will also make sure that the final selection is:
  • Gender balanced
  • Region balanced with one participant from North America for two participants from Europe
  • Limited to two participants per European country and to three participants per North American country
  • Professionally balanced with no more than a third of participants working in the same sector or industry.
To preserve the above-mentioned balance and to ensure the quality and diversity of participants, the selection jury will select the next highest scoring candidate to replace the lowest scoring redundant candidate.
Shortlisted candidates will be contacted for a short Skype or phone interview.
