Posted on Apr 29, 2021 in Freelancing

Freelance journalists with a reporting project can apply for a grant.

The Association of Professional Journalists, approved by the Government of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation, has launched the Freelance Fund, allocating a total of EUR550,000 during the COVID-19 crisis.

Grantees will receive EUR700 for the production of an original and unpublished journalistic story.

Works must focus on one of the following themes: the virus of resourcefulness; the virus of sports; the virus of art; the virus of heroes as well as ordinary people; the virus of invention; the virus of solidarity; tomorrow, after the virus...; and "everything... except the virus!"

Projects can be individual or collective. The resulting stories will be published on Journalist

The deadline is May 31.
