Welcome to the #EFSJclimategrant!
NOTE: The deadline for submitting applications was moved
to 29th June, 2020
Are you a journalist or a team of journalists based in Europe? Are you interested in climate change in Europe or beyond? If so, the #EFSJclimategrant is made for you.
This is an investigative grant to support journalistic projects about climate change science that have not yet been published. The jury is comprised of experienced journalists and scientists. Individual or team projects are eligible to apply, with at least one member being based in Europe, but the judges will give extra points to projects with a trans-national composition and for trans-media collaborative projects, especially those that include African journalists or are connected in some way to Africa. The deadline to apply was postponed to 29th of June 2020.
One to three projects will be awarded grants, worth up to a total of 12,000 euros. One of the laureates will also be awarded the NextJournalism Prize by the jury, including a 3-days international learning expedition and one masterclass and workshop in Paris with the CFJ.
The winner will be announced at the European Conference for Science Journalists on 1st or 2nd September 2020, in Trieste, Italy.
