About us

Future News Worldwide is a partnership programme between the British Council and some of the world's leading media organisations; BBC, Google, Reuters, The Herald, The Quint and the UK schools of journalism.  Together we identify, train and connect the next generation of global journalists.

The Future News Worlwide annual summit is a central focus of the programme, and brings together 100 young journalists each July to learn from broadcasters, editors and reporters and meet their peers around the globe. Following the conference delegates join the FNW alumni network. 

Delegates for the summit are selected through a global competition. Applications are open to anyone who meets the eligibility criteria detailed on the Apply Now page, and in the competition Terms and Conditions.

Applications are now closed.
