Status: Closed

Organisation: Global Investigative Journalism Network (GIJN)

Deadline: 15/05/2024

Location: Online

The Global Investigative Journalism Network (GIJN) is announcing a call for proposals for the Global Investigative Journalism Conference to be held in 2027.

The Global Investigative Journalism Conference is the world’s premier international gathering of investigative journalists. Held every two years, the conferences have trained thousands of journalists, sparked hundreds of investigations and collaborative projects, and played a key role in the global spread of investigative reporting over the past 22 years.

Note: To be eligible for this call for proposals, potential hosts must be a GIJN member. It is possible for member organisations to collaborate and co-share the host role in one country.

The decision on the 2027 conference hosts will be made by GIJN in consultation with its board of directors.

The organisation that is selected to host GIJC27 will team up with the GIJN Secretariat to finance and organize the conference. They recommend detailed proposals of at least eight pages (in PDF) that discuss:

  • Fundraising strategy, including the host organisation’s ability to find funding and sponsorships. (The average cost of a GIJC ranges from US$750,000 to US$1,000,000+)
  • Ability of the host organisation to obtain local support.
  • Host organisation’s experience at organizing conferences.
  • Host organization’s experience in management.
  • Advantages of holding the GIJC in the suggested city, including environment, transportation, logistics, security, travel visa availability, and cost.
  • Estimated budget for the conference.
  • A description of the potential venue/s (hotel, conference center) for the conference.
  • Suggested focus and structure of conference panels, workshops, and other events.
  • Ability to work with the GIJN Secretariat on planning, programming, fundraising, and logistics.
