The Rome Press Game is one of the four project of the International Careers Festival! The project is the only simulation in the world totally dedicated to the world of journalism, international communication, and interpretation and translation. The Rome Press Game, given its multicultural approach to the world of information, is also the perfect practice for all aspiring translators interested in working as part of an international news team, reproducing materials in multiple languages. All participants will have the chance to prove themselves and become a reporter for few days from the 23th to 27th of March 2018 during the International Careers Festival in Rome. Apply here!
The project allows participants to take part in a truly multicultural environment and interact with students from over 100 different countries. It is a great opportunity for all high school students, university students and/or graduated students in communication, literature, media, international relations and journalism.
The Rome Press Game gives participants the opportunity to experience four days as real journalists as they interview ambassadors, UN officials, and other special guests. They will also be tutored and guided by industry experts, technicians, cameramen, and journalists in order to create professional media.
Journalists will carry out their interviews with the contribution of thousands of young Festival participants and our many prestigious personalities and special guests taking part in the event. Participants of the Rome Press Game will be divided into teams and will follow a set schedule of activities. The team that stands out the most, and is thus chosen by our judges, will be awarded various prizes such as interview and internship opportunities with our partners.
The simulation uses the "learn by doing" approach so that participants can acquire a full spectrum of theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of journalism and media, such as learning the tools for proper sociopolitical and economic analysis; journalistic writing skills within the environment of new media; the necessary skills to utilize new means of multimedia and online journalism; refined writing ability and capacity to relate within a structured news/editorial team; designing and developing informative products, whether traditional or innovative; team working skills; ability to interact with the public and heads of media as part of a press office; the preparation of manuscripts.
Therefore, this simulation is most suited for students of journalism, communication, translation/interpretation, languages, literature, and philosophy. It gives students first-hand, practical experience to put on their CV because, although only a simulation, it replicates all aspects of the media, allowing students to fully comprehend the dynamics of the industry and the behind the scenes work of what we read in newspapers or see on TV.
Applications are open here.
