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 from all over the world to strengthen their skills in cultural journalism and to narrate cultural stories in English and Spanish.

The program will be held April 26 to May 3. Participants will explore the relationship between journalism and fiction, taking the novel "One hundred years of solitude" written by Nobel laureate Gabriel García Márquez as a roadmap.

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, accomodations, international medical insurance and some meals.

The deadline is March 21.
