The Environmental Reporting Collective Collaborative Grants 2022 are currently accepting applications.
These awards are intended at encouraging cooperation and enabling journalists from various nations to work together to fill in gaps in each other’s reporting, particularly when it comes to tracking environmental crimes across borders.
At least two journalists or media outlets from two separate nations or regions must apply. Applicants who work as freelancers are encouraged to apply.
Proposals must be thorough and environmentally conscious (you can interpret this broadly).
Applicants must be able to show how cooperation might help their tale.
Application for Environmental Reporting Collective Collaborative Grants
An application must include:
A one-page “pitch” of your proposal that includes specifics on your concept and a strategy for reporting.
A one-page budget proposal (you can use the Budget Template)
Resumes for each journalist, including links to or PDFs of past investigative work
Data about your reach, audience, and connections to prior investigations for media outlets.
Note: While signing up as a partner newsroom is highly recommended before or during the application process, it is not needed and will not jeopardize an outlet’s application.
A quick letter of encouragement from an editor in your newsroom for staff writers.
For freelancers, provide links to past published pieces as well as the names and contact information for two editors with whom you have collaborated. A letter of endorsement from a publication willing to publish your tale is optional.
Send your application as attachments (PDF, Word, or ODT format) to [email protected] with the subject line Collaborative Reporting Grants: [Your Names]
