European Journalism Centre IDR Programme 2018

The European Journalism Centre today opens a new call for applications for its Innovation in Development Reporting Grant Programme (IDR) on the topic of opportunities for women today in developing countries.

“The Innovation in Development Reporting Grant Programme has granted over €4.5m to almost 400 grantees worldwide.

In this latest round, we’re looking to add to that community by supporting newsrooms and freelancers covering compelling topics”

The European Journalism Centre is an international non-profit that connects journalists with new ideas. Through grants, events, training and media development the European Journalism Centre has been building a sustainable, ethical and innovative future for journalism since 1992.

Whether tackling women’s lifelong learning, health, jobs, entrepreneurship, or new roles in their communities, the projects pitched should be original, under-reported, critical and nuanced.

Eligibility

Freelancers, staffers, and media organisations are eligible to apply. There is no citizenship, nationality or residence/location restriction on the applicants as long as the final results are published in media outlets with significant reach to audiences in the following European countries: France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and United Kingdom.

Journalists who are not specialists in development issues are strongly encouraged to apply as well.

Selection criteria

The stories must report on one or more of the world’s developing countries, (ideally Least Developed Countries (LDCs)), and/or the key European donor countries’ development relations with these countries.

Selection criteria include editorial focus and quality, impact and reach, and innovation. Previous winners have involved creative uses of video, audio, imagery, data, text, maps, graphics, quizzes, animation and other engaging content forms.
