To recap, in 2012 we head back to half of last year's Balkan destinations; Tirana, Skopje, Podgorica and Prishtina, we hope to see you another year!
The chosen Balkan cities, with prospective dates of writing from them, are:
Belgrade (9 - 13 May 2012)
Zagreb (end of May/ early June 2012)
Istanbul (end of June/ mid-July 2012)
Sarajevo (mid to late July 2012)
The angle for the 2012 Orient Express reporter is that only EU-based journalists will report from Balkan cities, and only Balkan-based journalists will report from EU cities, which make up the other four destinations this year:
Budapest (19 -23 April 2012)
Berlin (19-23 September 2012)
Brussels (17-21 October 2012).
Unfortunately, all calls for journalists and photographers are now closed, as we have received many applications to all eight cities. If you have any queries or want us to remember your name for a hopeful next edition of Orient Express Reporter, just drop us a line to email@example.com. If you live in one of these eight cities, write to us and say hi too!
