As we announced during the recent partner meeting in Istanbul, Free Press Unlimited is offering four individual journalists a unique opportunity to obtain a Free Press Unlimited Investigative Journalism Fellowship.
We are interested in written proposals for investigative journalism projects that are gripping and courageous, exude the inquisitive spirit of serious journalism, shed light on issues that are important yet underexposed and offer the public new perspectives.
In concrete terms, the fellowship consists of return airfare (economy class) to Rio de Janeiro and free hotel accommodation for the course of the 8th Global Investigative Journalism Network Conference, held from 12 to 15 October in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
This will allow the recipient to network and exchange ideas with the leading journalists in the field, get expert advice and learn from new best practices that are shared at the event.
Submissions Deadline: 15 August 2013.
Your individual proposals will be reviewed by a panel made up of Free Press Unlimited staff. Please submit your proposal (a maximum of five pages) in English, French or Spanish.
Proposals can be sent via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Successful applicants will be notified that they will be receiving a fellowship by 15 September, 2013 at the latest.
