How to become a regular contributor

In order to apply, please send an e-mail with the subject “APPLICATION Contributor: your name” to Please write a short text (100 – 200 words) explaining why you want to work with us and what kind of journalistic experiences you’ve already made. You’re welcome to include a short CV (bullet points, preferably one page, no more than two pages) and up to three samples of your journalistic work. The latter can be pieces of writing, photography, radio or film. Please do not send large attachments, this applies especially to videos – we’d much rather have you provide a link so that we can watch it online. For any stories that are not in English, Spanish or German, please add a short synopsis (no more than five sentences). If you have unpublished work you think would fit into Meeting Halfway, please mention that as well, and we will consider publishing it on our page.
