Open to: journalists, freelancers and other expert media practitioners
Grant: grants of up to USD 1,000

  • Investigative piece or long form narrative: 2,500 to 5,000 words (can be combined with video, photos, graphics, and/or maps);
  • News article: 500 to 1,200 words;
  • Multimedia package: Video piece 2-6 minutes in length that can be accompanied by possible graphics, photos, text, maps.


  1. Journalists and other expert media practitioners;
  2. Freelancers and staff from all types of media outlets —both large and small.


  • EJN is offering grants ranging up to a maximum of  USD 1000, depending on the proposal and method of coverage, but it is of course advantageous to request smaller amounts;
