Universitas Paramadina & The Jakarta Post
Universitas Paramadina and The Jakarta Post would like to congratulate the winners in our “News Feature Writing Competition, 2010”.
This first nation-wide writing competition has been joined by many Indonesian youth from various schools and universities in Indonesia and overseas. The competition was divided into two categories. The first category (A) was for Indonesian citizens currently studying in SMU or in their first semester of a university. The second category (B) included advanced undergraduate students, sarjana (S-1), and other Indonesian youth between 18 and 26 years old. Participants had to write a 1,000 word news feature article in English and include at least two original interviews.
After careful reading of many submissions, judges picked the 12 best participants (finalists) from each category to join the Journalism Writing Workshop on 5 and 6 November 2010. Category A submissions were reviewed by a committee at Universitas Paramadina, and Category B submissions were reviewed by a committee at The Jakarta Post. The workshop was conducted at Paramadina campus by experienced journalists from The Jakarta Post. During the workshop participants learned about journalism and styles of journalistic writing and had their samples evaluated for further selection.
Following the workshop and interviews with the finalists in each category, a committee from Universitas Paramadina and the Jakarta Post jointly made the final selections, and here are the results:
