Journalists interested in data journalism can apply for this initiative.

Internews is accepting applications for the Open Iraq Initiative, which aims to transform public data into citizen engagement for gender equality.

The program involves training and mentoring 40 journalists and women-focused civil society organizations advocates in data storytelling and visualization and gender-responsive budgeting.

The Open Iraq training sessions, story incubators and ongoing mentorship will be conducted over an eight-month period beginning in April 2019 in Iraq.

Participants will be expected to have published locally led media or advocacy content pieces that explore the impact of government spending on gender equality and women empowerment.

The deadline is Jan. 31, 2019.
