Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
The GRID-Arendal is offering grants for investigative journalism projects focused on environmental crime in developing countries. The journalism grant program funds in-depth, investigative journalism that breaks new ground and reveals new information about environmental crime that takes place within or across developing countries.
The grant program is looking for high-impact reporting, especially on issues that are neglected by mainstream media. The program invites proposals for projects on a variety of media platforms, including print, online, audio, video, and multimedia projects. Proposals for data journalism, data visualization, and open source intelligence (OSINT) journalism are welcome. All projects must be published in English; if they are also published in one or more additional languages that would be a plus.
Currently, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the program seeks to support investigative reporting that involves little to no travel. The program will not fund projects that involve travel to indigenous, isolated, or vulnerable communities.
Successful applicants will receive half of the grant amount after signing a grant agreement, and the second half after the reporting project is submitted for publication or broadcast. The deadline for finishing a project will be six months from the signing of a grant agreement. Funded projects must note support from GRID-Arendal.
Applications are due in full at midnight Central European Time (CET) on January 22, 2021. Applications should include:
