Pop-up newsrooms spring to life in Cairo for #EgyPresElex

The candidates have been named, symbols have been assigned (Will Moussa's sun leave Shafiq on a ladder to nowhere?) and ballot boxes are being prepared across Egypt for the country's first presidential election of the post-Mubarak era. The stage has been set for this historic poll, and we want you to help us cover the events as they're happening on the ground.

Join us at a pop-up newsroom

For both daysp we'll be hosting a pop-up newsroom, where you can get together with fellow citizen journalists and members of our awesome trainer team to post the best citizen media for publication to the Al-Masry Al-Youm liveblog: http://liveblog.almasryalyoum.com
