Do you enjoy writing? Are you interested in post-communist transition? What are your thoughts on a free trip to Prague?
Transitions (TOL) is inviting students from across the globe to choose a topic relating to the social, political, economic, and cultural transition that has taken place in the last 25 years across the formerly communist countries of Europe and Eurasia.
You are free to choose your topic, your angle, your hook, your hypothesis, your research question, your style; as long as your content addresses post-communist transition in Central Europe, Eastern Europe, the Balkans, the Caucasus, or Central Asia, we will process your submission.
A panel of judges, led by Transitions’ editor in chief will choose the top three undergraduate and top three graduate entries. All of the winning entries will be rolled out in our online magazine, which has an international audience of more than 25,000 monthly readers.
The first place undergraduate and first place graduate writers will win a FREE trip to Prague to attend our fall conference, 25 Years After: The Challenges of Building the Post-Communist Media and Communication Industries, from 20-22 November 2014.*
Submissions are due by 10 October 2014. Submit your entry here!
* Winner’s package includes the flight to Prague, accommodation in Prague, local transportation, breakfast, daily refreshments, and lunch. Airport transfers and dinners are not included. Prize packages are generously provided by the International Visegrad Fund, which is funding the contest as part of a series of activities and events centered around the 25-year, post-communist anniversary.
