Applications are now open for the 2020 edition of the European Development Journalism Grant Programme. Eight grants worth up to €120,000 each will be awarded to media outlets in France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, and the United Kingdom to report on global development topics during the course of one year. Any news organisation or journalism outlet based in the aforementioned countries are welcome to apply with a topic that should address one or more of the first six sustainable development goals.

Over the past five years, this funding programme has supported 11 media organisations across France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, and the UK to report on global challenges that affect all of us. The awarded projects have demonstrated distinctive storytelling around critical issues, informed and engaged audiences, and resonated both with readers and the communities they reported on.
