The Gabriel García Márquez Foundation for New Ibero-American Journalism (FNPI) and Oxfam join forces to establish a journalistic scholarship to cover issues of inequality in Latin America and Spain.

The program allows journalists from the Ibero-American region to have the opportunity to participate and publicize their work, as well as to encourage them to continue their interest in issues of inequality, since they are a fundamental axis of both institutions and part of a joint program since the year 2013.


  • In its first edition, the winner will be selected by a text sent about coverage on issues of gender inequality. The text must have been published in a media or blog before the closing of the call for this contest.

The amount does not include taxes to be paid by the beneficiary and the convening institutions, and will be delivered as follows: 50% upon failure of the result of the call (award for a text already published), 50% once the new text. The transfer will be made to a bank account in your name in the next forty-five (45) days, once the winner has been announced.
  • The resulting text of this production grant will be published before December 2017 in the online version of The New York Times in Spanish. It will also be broadcast on FNPI and Oxfam websites and social networks.
  • Will have the advice of the editor Eliezer Budasoff, New York Times in Spanish, during the research and writing stage of the text.
