Vlad Odobescu

I am a freelance feature writer and fixer, a member of the Romanian Centre for Investigative Journalism and European Investigative Collaborations, a correspondent for Associated Reporters Abroad, a media network based in Berlin, Germany, and for Casa Jurnalistului, an independent media platform. 

From October until December 2015, I worked with the Institute for Human Sciences (Institut für die Wissenschaften vom Menschen - IWM) in Vienna, Austria, as a Milena Jesenska Fellow.

My experience ranges from Evenimentul zilei, a prominent Romanian newspaper to working as a former editor of Yahoo! News Romania. Between January and March 2013, I was a reporter-in-residence with The New England Center for Investigative Reporting (NECIR) in Boston. My articles have been published in New Statesmen, USA Today, Süddeutsche Zeitung and Der Standard, among others.

I won multiple awards and fellowships, including the first prize of the Balkan Fellowship for Journalistic Excellence in 2013, the prize for best feature writing awarded by the Romanian Press Club in 2012 and the “European Reporter 2011,” a competition organized by The Representation of the European Commission in Romania.
