Applications are now open for the 2020 Youth Press Gallery program!

Youth Press Gallery is a great opportunity to write about issues you’re passionate about and be the voice of young Victorians. In the lead up to Youth Parliament, the Youth Press Gallery will partake in a series of workshops with professional journalists, equipping participants with industry skills to produce stories for major publications.

Articles by Youth Press Gallery participants in 2019 were published in the ABC, SBS and Crikey, as well as local papers such as the Macedon Ranges Leader and Bendigo Weekly. 

This program equips participants with experiences and skills relevant for careers in media, politics and public policy. Recent Youth Press Gallery participants have gone on to work for news organisations such as the ABC, the Warrnambool Standard and the Hamilton Spectator.
