The International Center for Journalists is launching the second edition of Jogo Limpo, a program to combat disinformation, in partnership with YouTube Brazil.

Through this initiative, ICFJ seeks to support methods and models to promote factual content that resists the dissemination and the impact of fake news. This is in addition to supporting and empowering journalists, fact-checkers and the entire Brazilian media ecosystem.

Candidates will be divided into two categories:

Primary Candidates: fact-checking agencies, journalists, or media organizations with demonstrated experience in combatting disinformation can apply as primary candidates. These candidates will be responsible for filling out the application forms and be the point of contact throughout the selection process. In order to incentivize collaboration, primary candidates can partner with secondary candidates and submit up to two proposals (each with a different secondary candidate).

Secondary Candidates: Researchers, academics, technology developers, students, and other professionals that have demonstrated experience in projects related to journalism and media, especially with combatting disinformation, can partner with primary candidates for the project proposal. Secondary candidates cannot apply independently and they can only apply with a primary candidate.
