University to host masterclasses for journalism entrepreneurs

Up to 30 news entrepreneurs can apply for an intense weekend of master classes at the University of Central Lancashire to kick-start their journalism initiatives.

The Google funded Media and Digital Enterprise project is aimed at helping journalism start-up projects.

The 48-hour MADE:UK Start-up Weekend will run from 15 – 17 June at UCLan’s Media Factory, a centre for creative and digital industries in Preston.

Project founder François Nel said: “The ideal candidates will be creative, motivated communicators looking to make factual content in the public interest.

“Projects could be news and information, hyperlocal news, niche content or issue based. If it’s in the public interest, we want to hear from you.”
