For a third time for a Youth Olympic Games, the IOC has launched a Young Reporters Programme for the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games.

The programme, which runs from 30 September to 19 October 2018, will bring 30 young reporters from five continents to the Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires (Argentina), due to take place 6–18 October 2018.

They will be accredited as “E” press, have access to all the sports venues, work and train in the Main Press Centre with all other accredited media, and receive specialised and intensive media training from senior Olympic journalists.

Aspiring Young Reporters, aged 18 to 24, will be selected from among journalism students or young reporters, fluent in English.

NOCs are invited to submit candidates to their Continental Association, after having established their own national selection process on the basis of passion, performance and promise.

The deadline for applications, to be sent to the EOC Head Office, is 1 November.

The EOC will then select two male and two female Young Reporters from the nominees and submit them to the IOC for consideration.

The IOC will announce the successful candidates on 12 December.
