Due Date: August 2, 2019
Applications for the AIJC19 Fellowship for African Reporters are now open. The African Investigative Journalism Conference (#AIJC19) is the leading yearly event of African investigative press reporters– a three-day global conference for and about investigative journalism. It includes abilities training, networking, partnership and extensive accounts of significant investigative stories. It is hosted by the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg.
This year’s conference will include more than 50 speakers in workshops, panel conversations and networking sessions, along with abilities training in locations such as innovative information analysis and security. Secret speakers consist of acclaimed reporters from throughout the world, and Africa’s finest. This is an opportunity to hear and fulfill those leading the field and boost your abilities with the most recent tools and ideas.
In 2019, with the assistance of sponsors and partners, they have a spending plan to bring 40 African reporters to Johannesburg for the conference. Places are open to print and relay reporters with a tested performance history in investigative journalism, who wish to establish their investigative abilities and gain from other African and global reporters. Fellows will be needed to either produce a story or do a discussion in their house nation, based upon knowings from the conference.
- The bursary will cover flights to Johannesburg, airport transfers in Johannesburg, lodging, transportation to and from the conference, meals and conference charges. It does not cover home-country transportation, visa expenses or a daily.
- Open to print and relay reporters with a tested performance history in investigative journalism, who wish to establish their investigative abilities and gain from other African and global reporters.
