Bridgestone has announced that the 2009 ‘e-reporter’ competition for young aspiring journalists is now open for entries.
The competition aims to provide students with ‘invaluable experience’, and will help them to establish careers within the media.
The competition is open to European students aged 18-30, and is for those with a passion for motorsport, or who are simply keen journalists.
Bridgestone has said it wants to make the competition as accessible as possible to students from all over Europe, and so entries can be submitted in English, Dutch, French, German, Polish, Spanish or Portuguese.
Eleven finalists will be selected by an international panel of judges, and will be given the opportunity to attend a MotoGP or GP2 Series race weekend.
While on-event the finalists will be able to interview top riders and drivers, and will write articles for the Bridgestone website.
Applicants should submit their entry online at www.bridgestone.eu/e-reporter before Tuesday 31 March 2009
