The Earth Journalism Network (EJN) is offering reporting grants to journalists from countries located around the Mediterranean Sea interested in developing in-depth stories exposing the scale of unsustainable marine management, biodiversity loss and illegal fishing.
Despite the startling statistics which have become synonymous with the Med crisis, not enough information is either being made available or easily accessible, resulting in a public that is largely unaware of the scale of the unfolding crisis. EJN is seeking to support journalists interested in learning more about these issues and wishing to report on them.

Launched in March 2022, the Mediterranean Media Initiative aims to build the capacity of journalists to produce independent reports on the current state of the Mediterranean Sea, cover solution-based approaches proposed through technology and citizen-led innovations and investigate criminality and corruption which is either transboundary in nature or within national waters.
With support from the Adessium Foundation, EJN is pleased to offer five story grants for this first round of story grants to selected journalists to report on overfishing, illegal fishing and the biodiversity crisis in the Mediterranean region. In addition to funding, selected journalists will receive support from experienced mentors through the story production process.
