Vujcic in 2019

My name is Djuradj "George" Vujcic.[1] All files are my original work and I am the sole copyright owner. My photos may be used provided I am attributed as the sole author of them.

Media and sports are two great passions of mine.[2] The first time that I wrote something that was published was in January 2003 when I was ten years old and I wrote (using my nickname Djuka) a funny caption which was published on the Sacramento Kings website.[3] In 2006, my article on the Serbian White Eagles was published.[4] In 2007, I was proud to have won a contest for best basketball article for my article on the new NBA ball issued that season.[5]

I've worked as a sportswriter and webmaster for the Canadian Soccer League (for which I first received a media pass in 2007), camera operator and sports production assistant for Rogers TV where I interviewed and filmed tennis stars such as Ana Ivanović[6] at the 2009 Rogers Cup. My various duties have included writing match reports, filming, photographing, advertising and translating. Working in the world of soccer is a pleasure. It puts me in contact with players and fans across the globe. This is a field that I have been interested in for as long as I can remember.

In 2012, I was a guest journalist for B92 Sport.[7][8]

In February 2012, I became the co-founder, owner and editor-in-chief of the Urban Book Circle.[2]

From February 2012 to August 2018, I wrote for Canadian soccer magazine RedNation Online.[9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21][22][23][24][25][26][27][28][29][30][31][32][33][34][35][36][37][38][39][40][41]

In August 2019, I became a member of PEN Canada.[42] In July 2020, I interviewed Petar Čelik who is commonly referred to as the Father of Serbian Bodybuilding.[43]

I'm also very interested in linguistics. I'm fluent in English and Serbian (including both Serbian scripts – Latin and Cyrillic). I speak Serbian with the dialect of Shtokavian (Ekavian variety) with a relatively idiosyncratic accent. I am also fluent in other South Slavic languages and have a rudimentary understanding of East and West Slavic languages.
