AUCKLAND (Jeanz Online/Pacific Media Watch): Two graduating New Zealand journalism students are off to Fiji next week for work placements on the Fiji Times and Islands Business, thanks to a new Pacific work placement award.

The Pacific Cooperation Foundation launched its media graduate placement (print) programme in September.

The first recipients, Jonathan Dow (Auckland University of Technology and Te Waha Nui newspaper) and Duncan Wilson (Canterbury University), start their one-month placement in Suva on November 8.

Jon will work at the Fiji Times while Duncan is going to Islands Business.

Programme manager David Vaeafe says the foundation plans two print placements a year into the Pacific. Next year it will launch a placement programme for electronic media students.

Journalism schools in the Pacific at the University of the South Pacific (USP - Fiji), National University of Samoa (NUS - Samoa) and the University of Papua New Guinea (UPNG - PNG) will be offered a programme to enable their students to come to New Zealand for work experience.
