EJN is offering reporting grants to journalists to support the production of in-depth stories that will call attention to fisheries subsidies issues, both at a large and small scale.
Proposals that focus on topics or stories that have not been widely covered are preferred. Issues that have already received a lot of media coverage or don’t provide unique angles to environmental challenges are less likely to be selected.
Applicants can be from any country in the world, and a few grants will be given out to journalists working on fisheries subsidies issues globally, but preference will be given to journalists reporting from the regions that are the key focus of this project. They are: India, the Caribbean, West Africa, Southern Africa and Japan.
