NewsSpectrum expects to fund around 40 fellowships in 2021 through two schemes: the Collaborative Reporting Fellowships (CRF) and the Professional Placement Fellowships (PPF). The NewsSpectrum programme aims to support the innovation and sustainability of minority-language media as crucial members of a free, diverse, and pluralistic media environment in Europe. It also seeks to support media coverage that reports knowledgeably on minority issues and includes the perspective of representatives of minority-language groups in news coverage. NewsSpectrum’s goal is to build sustainable partnerships between minority- and majority-language media. This applies especially to the Professional Placement Fellowship.
The Collaborative Reporting Fellowship supports reporting projects carried out by journalists working at minority-language media (including regular freelance contributors) in collaboration with a majority-language media outlet.
The Professional Placement Fellowship supports custom short-term work placements or study visits by minority-language media professionals at majority-language media. It can be used to support collaborative skills and knowledge exchange on various aspects of the newsroom, including news reporting, digital transition, business models, audience engagement, and community building.
