ICFJ seeks projects to fight misinformation [Brazil]

Posted on Jan 26, 2023 in Combating Mis- and Disinformation

Journalists, fact-checkers and collaborative teams can submit their projects to this program.

The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ), supported by YouTube Brazil, is seeking projects for the "Jogo Limpo" (Fair Game) program, that aims to help fight misinformation in Brazil.

Submitted proposals should fit into one of the three categories: content production, tech development or media literacy.

Organizations and individuals may apply. Collaborative teams may include non-journalists, as long as they have worked in fighting misinformation initiatives in any field in the past six months.

Each project will get up to US$13,750, a five-month long mentorship, and opportunities to promote the initiative with the support of ICFJ and YouTube Brazil.

The application deadline is March 12.
