The European Journalism Centre announces journalism grants for innovations in development reporting

Hello everybody! Although you know I have never published any press release without taking my time to write down the information in other words, I have to apologize because I’m running out of time but I consider this piece of news really interesting to share with you. Hope you will find it useful and let me know if you apply! 😉


The European Journalism Centre (EJC) is pleased to announce that it has received financial support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to advance journalistic coverage of issues related to global development and the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals. Therefore, in 2013 the EJC will implement a grants programme supported by the Gates Foundation.

The Centre will provide a selection of innovative reporting projects with the necessary funds to enable journalists, editors, and development stakeholders to perform thorough research and to develop entirely new and experimental reporting and presentation methods. They will also be able to use multi-platform approaches and to think laterally across disciplines and techniques of journalistic storytelling. Award decisions, based on journalistic quality and merit, will be taken in complete editorial independence from the Gates Foundation. Sigue leyendo
