Ocean Reporting Network Fellowship 2024 – Global South

Status: Open

  • Fellowships

Organisation: Pulitzer Center

Deadline: 26/05/2024

Location: Global South

Applications are now open to join the second cohort of the Ocean Reporting Network (ORN), a fellowship program that gives professional journalists the opportunity to spend a whole year working on an in-depth or investigative ocean story.

The Ocean Reporting Network, or ORN, is a Pulitzer Center initiative designed to facilitate cross-border reporting on illegal fishing, pollution, human rights violations, and other wrongdoings that continue to threaten marine biodiversity and coastal communities.

The network will establish a collaborative ecosystem of journalists around the world.

  • Access to data and documents as well as the opportunity to sharpen your data skills with support from the Pulitzer Center’s Data and Research team.
  • Specialized training opportunities such as the use of satellite imagery and other digital tools in investigations, corporate and follow-the-money research, and more.
  • The opportunity to work and collaborate with other journalists on stories that transcend your country and region and can achieve true global impact.
  • A community of like-minded colleagues that will continue beyond your Fellowship.
  • The possibility of renewing your Fellowship for an additional one or two years, based on performance.
  • Salaries commensurate with experience.
What they are looking for?
  • They want compelling, impactful, innovative, and well-developed story ideas that can be followed over the course of a year—not just a one-off story, or coverage of a general topic.
  • Experienced environmental journalists—freelancers or staff—working with local, regional, or international media outlets in online, print, radio, and video format.
  • Teams of journalists proposing cross-border collaborations.
  • Dedicated team players who will devote a full year to their ocean investigation and publish regularly following a timeline decided together with the Pulitzer Center and their editors.
