Journalists based in the Midwest with and interest in environmental reporting can compete for funding.
Sentiment Media announces its new Midwest Journalism Fund. The program trains journalists to become more effective at reporting on the environment and the impact of industrial farming in the Midwest.
Throughout the program, participants will meet with editors from Sentient Media’s network, including Grist, to pitch and share ideas.
The program begins Oct. 3.
To culminate the program, journalists will participate in a pitch competition. A US$10,000 fund will be distributed between the winners for new reporting.
The deadline is Sept. 26.
