Deadline extended: Grants to cover marine crisis in Mediterranean Sea [Worldwide]

Posted on Apr 25, 2022 in Environmental Reporting

Journalists from countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea can apply for reporting grants.

With support from the Adessium Foundation, Earth Journalism Network (EJN) is offering story grants to selected journalists to report on overfishing, illegal fishing and the biodiversity crisis in the Mediterranean region. This initiative marks the upcoming World Biodiversity Day.

Interested journalists must submit story proposals focusing on themes such as biodiversity loss in the Mediterranean Sea, endangered marine species, marine protected areas, marine pollution, the deep sea, destructive fishing practices, or other issues affecting the Mediterranean Sea.

Five story grants up to EUR1,000 will be awarded to selected journalists.

Groups of journalists are also eligible, but the application must be made in the name of one lead applicant.

The application deadline is May 22.
