The Global Initiative against Transnational Organised Crime, working with the Henry Nxumalo Foundation and the Oxpeckers Centre for Investigative Environmental Journalism, is offering grants to journalists to investigate environmental crime in Africa.
The grants are intended to enable and encourage the exposure of environmental crime of any sort and to give journalists the time and resources to do this kind of reporting.
It will be your responsibility to get the material published/broadcast. Please indicate to them where you intend to publish/broadcast. An expression of interest from the publisher/broadcaster will assist your application.
- Grants will range from $1 000 to $5 000, depending on the scope of the investigation.
- The work must be completed within four months.
- Any journalist or team of journalists may apply, and the work may be done in any medium/media.
- They favour work which is in the public interest, aims to reveal new information, is in-depth and investigative in nature and uses innovative techniques, approaches or technologies and encourage applications from both experienced and new journalists. They may be able to offer mentors for the less experienced.
