inSCRIBE Bengaluru 2019 | Eligibility
The candidate must know communicably good English, and should ideally have some kind of writing background (though that is not a pre-requisite). If you have written for a living, you are almost there. If you have written fiction or poetry, such work would not really give you an edge over other candidates; but we will surely factor those in.
INSCRIPTIONS does not believe in qualifications, but skillsets. Any academic qualification, therefore, is not a pre-requisite. But for this kind of workshop, a participant should ideally be a graduate with some amount of work experience. Journalism / media students are most welcome.
This is a mentorship programme, and hence participants should preferably be those in the, well, "younger" age bracket. Though this is not being writ in stone, an applicant should preferably be in the 21-29 age group.
Those with a non-journalistic background are particularly encouraged to apply. Also, those who have graduated or done post-graduation in journalism, mass communications or media studies will not be given any additional preferential treatment. As far as selection is concerned, your story ideas will matter more than your academic background.
This workshop is being conducted in Bengaluru, and candidates need to be from this city. The stories that the candidates will be working on need to be Bengaluru-centric, and so it would be in the interest of the candidate to be conversant with the city—the issues and the people. But if you think that you have story ideas that you can execute in spite of not being from this city, please do apply.
