THINK3 - The rules

Participants must post at least twenty (20) times on the thinkaboutit.eu platform in order to qualify for the travel and reporting expeditions. TH!NKers who fail to post the minimum amount requested will not qualify.

Winners will be decided by the international jury members led by the EJC managing editor. In the selection process, jury will look at the following elements:

  • QUALITY: Exhibiting a command of journalistic techniques, including: independent research; use of a variety of sources; investigative techniques and strong writing.
  • IMPACT: Generating the most debate and discussion within the blogging platform during any given month. Authors are encouraged to respond to comments regularly in order to foster an interactive environment where readers feel they are a part of the platform as much as possible.
  • MULTIMEDIA: Using a number of multimedia tools such as videos, audio podcasts, slideshows and photography.
  • Comments that contain vulgar or abusive language, personal attacks of any kind, or offensive terms that target groups with a specific ethnic, racial, national or minority background are prohibited on the site. If found the contents will be removed and appropriate action will be taken; any audio-visual contents that include the above mentioned elements will be taken out from the platform and any related websites. In addition, comments that are clearly “off topic” or spam, that promote services, products and companies/organisations, or that make unsupported accusations are also prohibited.

    Furthermore, the contest seeks originality of the work. Any form of plagiarism is therefore prohibited both in text and audio-visual format. Participants should reference sources as much as possible, but make sure that all reference links and quotes are accurate. In addition, the participants are required to consider copyright issues when using third-party audio-visual contents. The EJC will not take any responsibility for issues that may arise due to this.

    These elements will be considered in the selection process. The EJC reserves the right to use the articles for non-commercial purposes, such as research or publications about the TH!NK project.

    By participating, you agree to these Official Rules and to the decisions of the Judges (The European Journalism Centre and other partners), whose decisions are final and binding in all respects.
