Journalists worldwide, preferably from coastal countries, can apply for reporting grants up to US$1,200.
Earth Journalism Network (EJN), with support from the Paul M. Angell Family Foundation, is accepting proposals for its Ocean Media Initiative Story Grants 2023, which focuses on covering marine pollution. The initiative aims to increase the quality and quantity of ocean pollution-related stories in the media, and build the capacity of journalists to improve their coverage of ocean-related topics.
Story ideas must focus on marine pollution – its sources, impacts on ecosystems and marine species; and ongoing efforts to curb and regulate sources of marine pollution.
Up to eight story grants will be awarded to selected journalists. In addition to funding, journalists will receive support from experienced mentors through the story production process.
The application deadline is Feb. 13.
