“On the footsteps of Albert Londres” takes young French reporters in Bosnia and Herzegovina
The association “On the footsteps of Albert Londres” continues with the implementation of its main project for a sixth time this year. This time, the young reporters are visiting and writing about Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The project is dedicated to Albert Londres, the French father of modern journalism and its aim is to replicate his experiences during several trips to the Balkans. Every year, young reporters are selected to travel to a Balkan country and produce reportages about the places they have visited.
The group of reporters that make up the 2017 “On the Footsteps of Albert Londres: Young Reporters in Bosnia and Herzegovina” consists of young French students, guided by professional journalists and photographers. So far, they have produced numerous articles on the topic of Bosnian media and have reported about important challenges that Bosnian journalists and independent media are facing.
“On the footsteps of Albert Londres” won the European Citizen’s Prize 2016 for its engagement in youth work and awareness raising towards the use of multimedia. Last year, ALDA was partner in the realization of the project “Young reporters in Romania”, through the France-Balkans decentralized cooperation programme.
