The Balkan Investigative Reporting Network in Albania has launched a call for investigative stories, which offered grants for four journalists to produce articles on topics related to environment.
The call is part of the project “Using Big Data and Multimedia to Boost Quality and Independent Journalism in Albania”, supported by the European Union.
The goal of the project is to create an enabling environment for Albanian journalists to produce independent content through training, mentoring, technical and financial support, and close cooperation with civil society, so improving freedom of expression and strengthening media pluralism in Albania.
Selected applicants, who will receive a scholarship of EUR 1,200 (minus personal income tax), will have a period of three months to complete their investigation and prepare the article for publication.
