PCF is now accepting applications from New Zealand and Pacific-based journalism/media students who wish to gain a unique opportunity to intern with regional news and media organisation in the Pacific region.

Now in its fifth year, the PCF Media Internship Programme focuses on improving the level and quality of media reporting in the Pacific, with particular interest on economic development, arts, environment and culture. Selected students will be immersed in the newsroom for two weeks where they will meet reporters and come away with a better understanding of regional issues.
