Print and digital journalists who are fluent in English and have at least three years of professional experience can apply for a fellowship in Colombia.

The Gabriel García Márquez Foundation for a New Ibero American Journalism (FNPI) and Colombia's  Ministry of Culture aim to encourage journalists to strengthen their skills in cultural journalism and to narrate cultural stories in English and Spanish.

The fellowship will be held Feb. 28 to March 6 and will bring together journalists from around the world for the 58th Cartagena Film Festival (FICCI) with the aim of delving deeply into the craft of cultural journalism. Fellows will view films and meet directors, actors, and producers. They will share experiences with their colleagues, and above all, will have an opportunity to write under the guidance of prominent instructors.

Fifteen candidates will be selected: five from Colombia, five from Latin America and five from other regions of the world. They will receive roundtrip tickets, accommodations, international medical insurance and some meals.

The deadline is Jan. 11.
