Women journalists based in any country in Africa can submit pitches on environmental issues.
African Women in Media (AWiM) is accepting pitches for its Environment Reporting Program 2022. AWiM seeks to positively impact the way media functions in relation to women.
Pitches should propose in-depth stories that explore environmental solutions with a focus on any of the 12 elements of the African Green Stimulus Program.
Journalists could also highlight the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on ecosystems, biodiversity, conservation, waste management and other issues related to the broader ecological challenges in Africa which affect women.
Journalists will receive free training, editorial coaching and US$100 towards their stories.
