IRP inaugurates two exciting new international reporting programs: New Media Fellowships and New Media Journalists Trips
The International Reporting Project (IRP) is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for two new kinds of global reporting grants in 2013. For the first time in IRP’s history, each of these two new fellowship programs will be open to non-US media professionals as well as to US citizens.
In addition to these two new programs, additional IRP reporting fellowships on specialized topics may be announced soon. Watch our web site for news and updates!
Here are the details of the two new programs in 2013. Qualified applicants may apply to either or both programs:
Application deadline: December 7, 2012
In 2013, the IRP will offer up to six year-long reporting fellowships to influential journalists and media figures who are actively engaged in the new media landscape, using new media and multimedia tools, with strong ties to a social media community, in order to support reporting projects on issues related to health, development, and innovation in the developing world.
Priority for these 12-month reporting grants will be given to journalists and other new-media practitioners from the United States, Brazil, France, Germany, Australia, India, Indonesia, the United Kingdom, and sub-Saharan Africa, but applications from other countries and regions are welcomed.
IRP New Media Fellows should propose producing both short-form and long-form reports in a variety of media, such as regular blog posts, tweets, video blogs, slideshows on Storify or Flickr, multimedia series, video documentaries, as well as in-depth stories online, in print, radio or television media.
