Deadline: 18 February 2016
Internews’ Earth Journalism Network (EJN) is currently inviting applications for its 2016 Biodiversity Story Grant to support the production of in-depth stories that highlight previously untold threats to global biodiversity or explore new conservation-based solutions.
EJN is offering grants typically ranging from $1,000 to $2,000 depending on the proposal and method of coverage.
- The Earth Journalism Network is looking to capture the importance of these losses by commissioning a series of stories that investigate new threats to species diversity around the world, as well as innovative, potentially-scalable conservation solutions.
- All story ideas are welcome, but special consideration will be given to applicants looking to conduct investigative or enterprise reporting on biodiversity or conservation topics.
- Journalists (online, print, television) and other expert media practitioners with a track record of reporting on environmental issues are welcome to apply.
- EJN encourage freelancers and staff from all types of media outlets—both large and small—to submit applications.
How to Apply
Applicants must have an EJN account which can be created through the given website.
- Investigative piece: 2,500 to 5,000
- News article: 500 to 1,200 words
- Multimedia package: Video piece 2-6 minutes in length that can be accompanied by possible graphics, photos, text, maps.
