The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) has selected 14 participants from the United States to report on everything from immigration to women’s health in the 2013 Bringing Home the World: International Reporting Fellowship Program for Minority Journalists. ICFJ also selected six U.S. journalists as fellows for the inaugural Social Justice Reporting for a Global America Program.
The fellows were chosen from a record 200 applications based on the quality of their proposals. Participants will report from abroad on issues that resonate with their local audiences.
Journalists mingled with technologists, programmers and designers to establish Latin America's newest chapter of Hacks/Hackers, which promotes collaboration on news media projects. More than 60 people attended the inaugural meeting of Hacks/Hackers Rosario, the second group to be formed in Argentina. Among the speakers were ICFJ Knight International Journalism Fellow Mariano Blejman, who talked about projects launched at Hacks/Hackers Buenos Aires, the country's first chapter.
