Deadline: 17 February 2017
The Earth Journalism Network (EJN) is seeking applications for its second round “2017 Biodiversity Story Grants” to support the production of in-depth stories that highlight previously untold threats to global biodiversity or explore new conservation-based solutions. Funding for this series is being provided by the Arcadia Fund.
The Earth is home to millions of species whose interactions keep our ecosystems and our planet in balance. This biodiversity provides the clean air we breathe and the food we eat, as well as a wide variety of other goods and services that enable us to thrive.
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.
EJN is offering grants typically ranging from $1,000 to $2,000 depending on the proposal and method of coverage, with some flexibility for deep, investigative stories using innovative approaches to storytelling.
- 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.
- Applicants should provide a detailed budget with justification for the amount requested.
- For investigative stories that may incur costs greater than $2,000, encourage applicants to propose possible partnership opportunities with other media outlets in order to conduct more in-depth reporting.
