Applications Open for African Investigative Journalism Conference!

Deadline: 30 August 2018

Applications are open for the African Investigative Journalism Conference (#AIJC18) which is the premier annual gathering of African investigative journalists – a three-day international conference for and about investigative journalism. It involves skills training, networking, promoting, collaboration and in-depth accounts of major investigative stories. It is hosted by the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg.

This year’s conference will feature more than 50 speakers in workshops, panel discussions and networking sessions, as well as skills training in areas such as advanced data analysis and security. Key speakers include award-winning journalists from across the world, and Africa’s best. This is a chance to hear and meet those leading the field and enhance your skills with the latest tools and tips.

In 2018, with the support of sponsors and partners, they have a budget to bring 40 African journalists to Johannesburg for the conference. Places are open to print and broadcast journalists with a proven track record in investigative journalism, who want to develop their investigative skills and learn from other African and international journalists. Fellows will be required to either produce a story or do a presentation in their home country, based on learnings from the conference.

Benefits
