Call for applications-Journalism grants for international development

Submitted by on May 2, 2013 – 13:50No Comment

The Euro­pean Jour­nal­ism Cen­tre (EJC) is a non-profit inter­na­tional foun­da­tion with the aim to improve and strengthen jour­nal­ism and the news media. As part of its mis­sion, the EJC launches its sec­ond call for appli­ca­tion for the Inno­va­tion in Devel­op­ment Report­ing Grant Pro­gramme. This media-funded project aims to advance cre­ative report­ing approaches, thus enabling a bet­ter cov­er­age of inter­na­tional devel­op­ment issues.

Inno­v­a­tive report­ing projects will be awarded con­sid­er­able fund­ing, with an aim to sup­port jour­nal­ists, edi­tors, and devel­op­ment stake­hold­ers to per­form thor­ough research and to develop new, excit­ing, and even exper­i­men­tal report­ing, employ­ing state of the art pre­sen­ta­tion meth­ods and tech­niques of jour­nal­is­tic storytelling.

Jour­nal­ists and rel­e­vant media out­lets that tar­get audi­ences in one or more of the eight Euro­pean coun­tries with the high­est net offi­cial devel­op­ment assis­tance are eli­gi­ble to apply: France, Ger­many, Italy, the Nether­lands, Nor­way, Spain, Swe­den, and the United Kingdom.

Projects are required to address by theme, style, and pre­sen­ta­tion the gen­eral pub­lic, or large audi­ence seg­ments, or must effec­tively lever­age impor­tant multipliers.They may be one-off pub­li­ca­tions or entire series, which must be nar­ra­tive, exploratory and explana­tory in nature, and may be pre­sented in a lin­ear or non-linear fash­ion includ­ing text, graph­ics, images, ani­ma­tions, inter­ac­tive ele­ments, video, audio, or film. Projects aim­ing at cross-country coop­er­a­tion and using mul­ti­ple plat­forms are strongly encour­aged to apply.

The sec­ond round to sub­mit entries will run until mid­night (24:00) CET on 2 Sep­tem­ber 2013.

The grant project is sup­ported by Bill & Melinda Gates Foun­da­tion.
