Deadline: 23 December 2016
The Earth Journalism Network (EJN) is seeking applications for its “Biodiversity Media Grant” with an aim to support journalism networks and media organizations throughout the world in increasing the capacity of media to cover critical issues of conservation and biodiversity.
The Biodiversity Media Grant will support projects that generally focus on training and capacity building, with flexible spending guidelines that enable local networks to invest in strategic opportunities, build the capacities of their members, and respond to communities’ needs.
The Biodiversity Media Grant will support projects that:
- Build the capacity of journalism networks and media organizations to report on biodiversity and conservation issues
- Carry out biodiversity and/or conservation training activities for journalists
- Build internal capacity
- Organize local networks around these issues
- Grant fund contains US$30,000, which we would ideally share among three projects.
- The average grant size would therefore be US$10,000, with potentially a greater share of the total going to projects that demonstrate a critical need.
Applications will be consider by NGOs or environmental groups looking to build the capacity of journalists to cover conservation issues, preference will be given to applications from or affiliated with professional journalists, media organizations, journalism schools and the like.
