They become familiar with professional routines in their host country and report on their impressions on site. Using the hashtag #GoetheCloseUp, participants report on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram about their experiences and their daily work.
 
The focus of this year’s Close-Up is on the USA

This year’s Close-Up will be part of the Year of German-American Friendship, which, until the end of 2019, aims to strengthen German-American relations with more than 250 partners and 1,500 events in all 50 of the United States under the motto “Wunderbar Together.” The particular focus is on programmes taking place in the nation’s heartland. Journalists who participate in Close-Up this year will have the opportunity to experience daily journalistic life in the USA and to pursue their own intensive research. 

The application deadline is 17 June 2019.
