The Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN) is inviting media outlets interested in connecting with their audiences and reporting on original stories that will make an impact to apply for Audience-Engaged Journalism Grants.

The selected grantees will undergo a four-day training programme that will be offered online, as well as on-the-job mentoring by BIRN editors on how to use and implement innovative, effective audience-engagement tools for investigative community-based reporting.

Individual grants will be awarded to selected media outlets that wish to cover national/regional/local topics on their own. On the other hand, collaborative grants will be awarded to selected media outlets that want to investigate cross-border issues with a media partner.
