The Global Initiative Against Transnational Organised Crime, working with the Henry Nxumalo Foundation, Oxpeckers Investigative Environmental Journalism and #WildEye Asia, is offering grants to journalists to investigate environmental crime in Asia.
We’re hoping for a diverse set of proposals and are reaching out to partners and collaborators in the hopes that you would share this with your network and on social media. Here’s a bit about the grant programme:
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.
Grants will range from $1,000 to $5,000, depending on the scope of the investigation.
Any journalist or team of journalists may apply, and the work may be done in any medium/media. We 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.
Applicants should also submit a CV, a budget and where possible an expression of interest from a publisher/broadcaster.
The deadline for applications is 31 August 2021 and all applicants need to do is complete the form outlining their proposal here.
