Participants will attend three-day workshops – one in Riyadh and other in Jeddah. With the support of an ICFJ expert trainer, 10 women journalists in each workshop will receive hands-on training on new digital tools and learn to develop engaging storytelling techniques and methods.

The program offers two months of virtual mentorship, in addition to multimedia story production. Participants will publish engaging multimedia stories that address issues of importance to women in Saudi Arabia. The journalist who produces the best story will receive a US$500 cash prize.

The deadline has been extended to Jan. 22.
