Applications are now open for the NewsSpectrum Collaborative Reporting Fellowships to provide support to joint reporting projects between minority- and majority-language media. The NewsSpectrum Collaborative Reporting Fellowships provide support to joint reporting projects carried out by journalists working at minority-language media in partnership with a majority-language media outlet.
The Collaborative Reporting Fellowships provide financial support to specific reporting projects. The Collaborative Reporting Fellowship aims to encourage collaboration and exchange, promote quality coverage of minority-related issues and strengthen the capacity of minority-language media in the EU.
- In general, the reporting project can focus on any public-interest topic that is relevant to the audiences of both media organisations.
- However, priority will be given to projects that highlight the specific situation or perspective of minority groups in the EU, that deal with relations between minority and majority groups, and/or that encourage an informed discussion of European affairs in minority-language media and the audiences they serve.
- Applicants are encouraged to put forward projects that offer new information or shed new light on issues of public debate. Cross-border collaborations are encouraged.
- All types of reporting are welcome, including investigative journalism, feature writing, explanatory reporting, and news analysis.
- Projects can also be a combination of different reporting types.
- Stories can be published in any form, including print, video, and audio. Projects that incorporate digital storytelling techniques and audiovisual formats are especially welcome.
